    I`m sure this is not a punishment @deepetshopboy and there are times when you can do nothing other than feel sorry for yourself.

    I have discussed previously whether carers can suffer PTSD and I think many do.

    Is there any chance you can get more help than you are getting now? Is there any possibility of respite care?

    The exhaustion you are experiencing could lead to carer breakdown. This is a battle which cannot be won. All you can do is ask for help.

    I also agree, it's not down to anything you've done @deepetshopboy it's unfortunately just the luck (or lack of it) of the draw. I do empathise with your comments about fighting a war though. With my own experiences, it tends to be that just as we've worked a way of how to deal with one behaviour/thing, another pops up.
    We all have good and bad days, I'm presuming this was a bad day. Fingers crossed that you have some good days too. xx
