You`re such a sensitive soul, no wonder "life" gets you down at times. I can relate to so much of what you`ve posted......but it was a long time ago (in my case) and i`m still here to tell the tale. ;)
Things DO get better, it just takes time...... Like others have said, your...

What an idealistic setting for your parents to be in..........you must feel really happy that they seem to be settling in well. I`m so happy for you that they can still be together......what a relief for you.
I hope you are able to relax a little now, knowing that they are in...
Thanks to all who have contributed to this thread. Firstly i`d like to say, that i was
rather irrate earlier today and if i sounded abrupt i`m sorry it wasn`t intentional.
All i want is some fairness shown to people like my dad who have been lifelong
smokers, do not want to...
they regulate him as he would smoke one after the other otherwise. Can i just
say that when dad was in hospital last August, he was given patches, which

Dad isn`t a resident, he lives with us. Another reason i`m so wound up about it, i only want 2 weeks holiday a year!!! I`m entitled to 6 weeks, but never take it as i don`t like to uproot him too much.
Just been back on to SS about Smoke- Free (exemptions vehicles) regulations 2007.
They were quite taken aback when i said i was sending for the documentation. We were put through to "the boss" and she is now getting hold of the powers that be that brought in the regulations to these...

Felt i needed to post today, i feel incensed/frustrated/sad/disheartened all at the same time !!
I phoned social services today re advice on the new no smoking policies that come into being in June as dad is a prolific smoker (got worse since A.D. was diagnosed ) To cut a long...
