counting my blessings

  1. I have lost 5 pounds!
  2. I go back to work on Monday so will only have to spend a few hours at Bleak House every day.
  3. I had a good night's sleep last night.

Congratulations! Now lock the doors and bolt the windows so those 5 pounds don't come back.

Lily, you really shouldn't have to cope with so much on your own. Is there anything the care team can do to make sure you get some respite and support?

Don't ever apologise about whingeing, you are going through some bad stuff right now and it's good to talk about it.

Hi Lily

You don't have to publish this comment if you don't want to, I can't see an e-mail address so thought this was the best way to get in touch.

There are some organisations set up to help people who find themselves thrust into the role of carer. I thought you might be able to find some support.

Carers UK have a website at http://www.carersuk.org/Home.

The Stroke Association have Family and Carer Support Services and I'm pretty sure they have a Yorkshire & Humberside local group. Their website is at http://www.stroke.org.uk/

Hang on in there, girl!
