    I hope that you find help on the boards - what seems to be the trouble at the moment, or is is just a case of everything getting on top of you?

    Kind regards

    Hi @woodsy and welcome to the community, I am sorry you are having such a tough time.  

    I found this information on the RNIB site, could it help at all?

    Hello @woodsy are you feeling any better? I feel your frustrations. I really hope you work out your son's bus pass soon. I don't understand why if somebody has a problem that is proven medically why the government whether it's the British or the United States government wants to make things more difficult for people like us. The frustrations and anxiety over it just messes with our health even more and makes every much much more difficult in our lives. You hang in there woodsy. I sincerely hope you get everything sorted soon.

    You sound really down and stressed @woodsy - if you are looking after other people, please make sure you take care of yourself too.

    You might like to look at the Parents and Carers category where you can chat to other people who are looking after their family members.  This is a warm, friendly and safe community so do keep chatting.
