    Hello @suky   Sorry what you are going through. My heart goes out to you and I know many members of community may be in touch.  To offer how they cope.

    Who will offer advice and information with sensitivity and kindness.

    All I can do is to say have you spoken to your Doctors ask for some help and support. One option is the care providers looking after the person who is ill. Are they helping you.?

    All I am doing is asking and hoping if anything is useful.

    Have you rung our helpline if that helps for any thing they can advise on.

    0808 800 3333

    Also may I add we as a community support each other. Please if you wish some one to listen . Am here anytime as all of our community to be supportive. In any difficult situations.

    Please take care

    Always in prayers and thoughts.
