I am 62yrs old and am a carer for my youngest son who is 33yrs old and has moderate learning disability.
I have just increased my hours as a community nurse to 4 days.
If I do not work our income would be low.
My husband is disabled too and had to retire early that said he is 72 yrs old now.
My son only really communicates with me.
However he listens to a controversial man called David Icke who talks doom and gloom and I can't stop him listening to him as he says it is his life.
I go out walking with my son when I get home also take him shopping.
He goes to the gym on his own which is within walking distance.
Recently he was assessed by 2 psychologists and deemed not to have financial capacity.
A lady also wanted to visit from Brighter Futures but he would not see her.
My concerns are
1. He can become angry and shouts and swears which is difficult to cope with.
2. Here refuses to accept anyone else except me.
3. Should I feel guilty going to work?
4. I feel trapped and am on antidepressants.
I love him but he has reduced emotional awareness owing to his disability.
