Mobility allowance: Carers should also be considered.

12th March 2015

My daughter ho can walk gets low mobility and middle care so I have never had a car. Yet she can't travel on her own.The problem now is me. I as her carer have not been well the last few years. Some days I have trouble walking and other days I am in pain but it is not every day. However if my husband wasn't home I probably ould not be able to manage everything.. I have my own car as I have had to supply my on car for all of my daughter's life.

I have also gone through something of a spiritual nature which I barely understand.

Carer Mental Health

28th February 2015

Posted by SophieYAC

Being a carer is very difficult, I'm sure most carers will agree, if not all. Caring can have a physical, emotional and social impact, as well as an impact on your mental health. This is something I want to focus on, on this blog post. Mental health affects 1 in 4 of us. I am not ashamed (anymore) to say that I am one of those people. I was diagnosed with anxiety and OCD in January 2014, just 9 months before I was due to go to university. To be honest, I wasn't shocked, I'd struggled with anxiety in the past, due to being a carer.

This blog post has come from my own blog site - but I thought I'd share it as my first post. I care for and have cared for other family members, who have various physical and mental health issues and substance misuse.

Mental Health - Mine

09th January 2015

Posted by Pedagog

This one is not easy for me to write. Last year I was diagnosied with Depression and refferred for CBT. I started with online CBT, didn't do alot as never able to concentrate on it. Then in the summer I started face to face CBT, was going well, till mother moved in, since October till today I have not been to CBT. Today's session was great, meant I had any hour to offload everything.   More on this later, when I feel strong enough to share.

Mum's Diet

Posted by Pedagog

So worried about Mum's diet, she is avoiding food and acting a little odd. Last couple of days we have only managed to get Breakfast and biscuits into her.  She is also showing some odd behaviours including hiding her handbag under her pillow. Any advice?

Doctors - My Turn

07th January 2015

Posted by Pedagog

So Doctors again my turn today. Visit to GP to ger results of the MRI scan I had Christmas eve, no real surprises yes I have got bulging discs, and they are pressing on the nerves to my legs, hence the numb legs.  Afternoon visit to have my "Over 40's" Medical, what a waste of my time and hers.
