Looking after ourselves

Re: Carers under 30...

not currently @Darcy after this week the stuff with the horses is easing right off though so itll jsut be the normal stuff. the rest of it is basically for pop and having to constantly be there for him etc- hes becoming very dependent that he cant even go to the chemist or the shops on his own anymore, he cant have specilists ring him etc because he doesnt know what they are talking about and if they ring to change appointments ill never know about it so everything is going through me now.
once some of his tests are ou of the way it wont be so busy either atm they need to do some ruling out for his symptoms. its hard to know whats what because he sometimes lies for attention or he forgets etc so its up to me to monitor etc and relay back to the drs. soo frustrating and overwhelming sometimes trying to manage everything and everyone

Re: Carers under 30...

Pops memory issues = yikes @outlander I reckon one would need a double sense of humour to cope with that.

 

Sending very gentle thoughts your way.
