Sometimes I have been great, another times I felt down like I was wanting to die . It was because of the way my son and my mother treat me. Like a chi,d, instead of a grown up.

    Hi &Bryce10 - I'm sorry to read this. Last year it seemed you & Chris were doing well, so I'm sorry if this is not now the case. You mentioned he had autism, so has this become more difficult for you to cope with, Ursula?
    Is your GP able to help or advise? It sounds like you should have been getting some much-needed support. Please keep in touch, & let us know how you're doing, thank you. :)
