    Welcome to the community @sarah78 ;) How are you doing today? Thank you for sharing this with us. I am sorry to hear you have been struggling to sleep. 

    Are you getting any support for your mental wellbeing and sleep difficulties through your GP? You may be interested in Parents Connect : that aims to give you the opportunity to meet and talk with other parents in a local social setting. 

    I have moved you over to our parent and carers discussions group. We also have a mental health and autism & aspergers discussions group you can join. 

    Carers UK have an helpline you can contact for additional support and advice.

    If you have any questions, please let us know. :)
