Hi, my name is Supergran!

I'm a 56 year old widow who has legal guardianship of my autistic grandson, 4, and his big sister, 17.
I have recently been diagnosed with degenerative spine, cervical stenosis and lumbar stenosis. I also have PTSD due to my partner's suicide in July 2015. Hoping to find others with similar problems to chat to.

    Hi @Supergran
    Welcome to the community! You might like to check out the discussions in Autism,  Parents and Carers and Mental Health. I am so sorry for your loss, have you been having counselling ?

I hope the community is able to support you. To echo @Ami2301, have you received help for your mental health? Also, do you have any other support in place at the moment?
