Morning everyone Havent been on line for a while but did want to drop in and say hello again Glad to see you all supporting one another and I do hope you all have a wonderful summer with many lovely days to outweigh the low ones Sadly Mum has been getting worse of late, becoming more disorientated around the home now and the other night had a fall outside - thankfully not a bad one I think just lost her footing while pacing up and down having a cigarette. Dad is showing signs of frustration so it is a welcome relief that we are due to go away for a week next monday. Only to a holiday caravan site down near Bournemouth but is very needed by all - including me. I am going to help Dad to have some time to chill too. Driving down and spending time going on day trips, so hopefully the weather will hold. What they dont know is how I need a break too, and I feel very selfish in saying this so thought I would get it off my chest here with you guys, I have issues not directly related to Mums condition but am unable to talk to either of them or other members of the family. Things have got so bad that I have been to my Dr and now seeing someone for professional councelling .... Dad would be upset if I said anything so I dont, even though I really want to as I feel it would help me (hence my feeling of selfishness) I hope to come back here after next week and tell you all what a great time we had, there's a part of me that thinks it will have it's challenges so any ideas or experiences are more than welcome TED - thanks for giving me somewhere to moan, it's most welcome.
