Re: Allotment!

A whole plot can be a lot to manage for one person. Maybe you could go half and let half your plot out. I'm sure someone will be keen as there is usually a long waiting list. Although Allotment folks can seem a bit quiet and the sort of people that like to keep themselves to themselves...most allotm...

Re: SCHIZOPHRENIA

I just wanted to say what a lovely thoughtful reply. I know it's a long time since your original post...but my Brother has schizophrenia and quite often the monthly depot injection can cause side effects like slurring of words, and dribbling. At first we mistook these side effects from the medicatio...

Re: Its really difficult!!

Sorry I have not got any answers. It sounds like you are doing your best to juggle many different roles. I know it probably not easy but do people like your employer and perhaps your GP know that you are caring for your Dad? Do you get any support or respite from caring for him. Anyone is entitled t...

Re: I have no answers

Hi, Sorry I have no answers either...but I just wanted to reassure you that I feel like a failure because I can not cope. It's like I am too stubborn to admit that I am struggling, despite deep down knowing that I should, and that people will help. I just so badly want be able to manage. It's sounds...

Re: Cats and birds.

The Story one year on... So I took a chance and got my cat a Bib. She wears it whilst there are young birds about. It looks like she is wearing a large blue kipper tie...some say it looks like a flip-flop. My Cat is not thrilled with it, but in our case it has been a huge success...only a couple of ...

Re: will the situ improve?????

:idea: Btw I definitely think you need to set limits and reduce the amount of time your Son spends in your Home each day. I would remind him that he is Welcome but that you need a little time to yourself...I don't know, but I am thinking it would be best if you could gradually reduce the amount of t...

Re: will the situ improve?????

Sorry I can't offer any advice...but I do feel the same about my Brother. If I try and help and talk with the Mental Health team...he is not happy and it's none of my business. Yet if he wants anything he thinks he can get it from me. I have had difficult explaining how this makes me feel, but I thi...

Cats and birds.

I'm feeling really down about this. I didn't feel like I could should post this in the safe room because it feels so trivial. I have two cats who I love very much. I am also lucky to have many wild birds nesting in my garden. I don't know how to protect the fledglings from my cats, without resorting...
