    Hi @rachaeljennings, thanks for sharing this with us. It sounds like a big change in your family and I'm sorry to hear that you're struggling.

    Given the circumstances, I wonder whether it would be most helpful to talk to an expert advisor in this area? Family Lives are an organisation with some great online advice, and also a helpline team which may be worth contacting:
