edited February 16 in Parents and carers
Hi i am disabled  with degenerative disc disease and 7 herniated discs with nerve impingement L5,arthritis in my ankles and fybromyalgia but also a carer of my daughter and main carer for my 8 month old grandson as my daughter is not able to care for him on her own. My daughter has moderate learning disabilities and is dyslexic, dyspraxic and dyscalculic. I have also just lost my Husband after a 6 month fight with bowel cancer and a diagnosis of Lynch Syndrome. I have just joined and look forward to finding out more about the community.

    Hi @SandyFoxieD

    I'm glad that you have your family there for you, and I hope your counselling comes through soon.

    I've been thinking about you and what your family is going through today and although I don't have the right words, I hope you know we're here for you. No pressure to reply, take all the time (or as little time) as you need.
