18 year old son with CP - Single Parent support needed

Hi everyone. Just joined group as feel I need support. My son is 18 and has cp. He is really struggling if I'm honest. He has never had good use of his left hand and his right hand has got worse as he's got older. This has really knocked his confidence. He hates eating out in public as he can't cut up his food and shakes when he lifts drinks. He feels incredibly isolated and doesn't have much of a social life. Being honest I'm finding it really hard supporting him as nothing I say gets through and don't really have much of a support network myself. (Single parent) just wondered if anybody was experiencing anything similar ? So I don't feel so alone. Any advice would be gratefully received x
