Sorry

Postby ange89 » Thu Nov 26, 2020 3:39 pm

Hi all
I have just joined the site and hope that I’m ok being here :| I’m a mum and carer to my daughter who has depressive phycosis and anxiety I have looked after for four years with her mental health condition on my own no help or respite, gave my job up last year to care for her full time . But I’m struggling myself now with my own mental health . I’m not sleeping so tired , my GP just suggested anti depressants but I have seen what they do to my daughter . I had a break down couple of months ago and in September was advised to claim for pip which I did , but only scored two points !!! Because I can wash myself etc but struggle to mix socially etc I only scored two points .
I’m struggling :( exhausted and everyday I don’t know how she will be as she self harms has constant suicidal thoughts . She’s medicated has being for a long time , but still they haven’t seemed to help all that much .
Sorry for ranting I’m just so down and worn out

No need to apologise: sometimes we just need to rant.
