    Well. Here goes.  
    I'm a mature lady of a certain age. Single mum to two autistic and fantastic kids. My mum isn't too well and she is 98. I work part time and find I get lonely and depressed.

    Hello

    Update since I said hello. My 98 year old mums in hospital seriously ill. Been sitting by her bed constantly feeling sick and anxious. I think it's the fear of never seeing or speaking to her again.  

    Shouldn't life get easier as we get older?   

    My sons 26 but mental age of about 12 and still needs watching or walks into posts in the pavement, bless him. His sister, my daughter is 20 but as she helps me a lot has no social life or friends so is a nieve twenty year old.  

    Anyone live in stoke on trent?
