Stress and tired

My daughter and son is the world to me but sometimes a break is needed. My daughter is deaf and is mentally delayed and can't walk yet. Get no help from the team around her or even family and I absolutely knacked

    @julie83 just a thought but you might want to introduce yourself in the "Introductions - meet other families" section. If you need help finding it, do let us know, best wishes @Alex_CAF_mod

    Hi @julie83 I know exactly how you feel, as I feel the same I don't have any family that can help me. I'm a single mum and my youngest son has Autism, I worry so much about him. I just do my best and keep on going.

  • Can you not ask for a carers assessment with the view to some much need respite hours for yourself? even if it's just the one evening a week? x

    Hi @Sky and @julie83 - we hope you are ok. Have you had a carer's assessment as heidijemma suggests?
