Hello @Surannesah and welcome to the forum.

I'm sorry hear about your situation. Perhaps you could tell us a little more so that we can support you.

Wishing you strength.

hello @Surannesah
a warm welcome from me too

I'm glad you've joined this supportive community as folk here are more than willing to share experiences with you

it's a tricky time right now, and it's tough being the only carer to someone

do contact your Local Authority Adult Servises for an assessment of your father in law's care needs as it may result in a care package to support you both ... you are also entitled to a carer's assessment ... these may be delayed at the moment, but contacting will at least flag up your situation ... and however much you feel you are OK now, you will need help at some time, no-one can care for another adult completely on their own

now you've found us, post with anything that's on your mind, members will understand
