: Wow, that is so tough. I feel so much for both of you. It must be hard sometimes, with a child who pushed things so (even if it's not really her fault, given that she has some disabilities) to keep loving her sometimes. (I'm going to guess that she's your child and you do love her, but that sometimes she must make you so angry and tired that those feelings overpower the others) I'm really glad she has this help. Bless the social medicine systems. One thing I wonder, are you seeing someone to talk to who helps you manage the feelings that this situation creates in you? I hope that if you don;t have a counselor that you will get one, because someone is your situation needs the extra help, too, because its such a high pressure situation.
: Good luck and my best hopes for you both
#### Thanks for your kind words and thoughts Rhonda. My work counsellor has convinced me to have lunch with her every fortnight to give me some support and she is trying to convince me to take up some sessions with work provided psychologists. I am not averse to that but time is a problem and I ensure that I eat well, have regular exercise and go out occasionally with friends and family. When there is no immediate crisis, I feel I can cope quite well but its a bit like childbirth, you forget the pain until it happens again and then you wonder how you can get through it and how long you can go on like this. I have found it is important to keep a positive attitude and not dwell on the "what ifs". But other than that, you just have to go through it and keep hopeful. Sharlee
