April 2012

What support?

I thought things were getting sorted out earlier this year, but it looks as if the support system has once more failed me.

My aunt was admitted to a mental health unit at the start of the year following 5 years of hallucinations and delusional paranoia. I finally managed to get the psychiatric nurses convinced that she was having problems when she started calling the police several times a day to report men on her roof. I live close by, but will not have her living with me as I can barely cope with the 2 boys.

Andy has a cough......

…the cough from hell…..It’s now the beginning of April and there’s probably been a two or three week period between now and Christmas where he hasn’t been coughing his guts up time after time day and night. 

Everything happens at once ........

 It feels like it's been the longest month I've had in years, and yet it also has gone so fast with everything that's happened.

Firstly we had all the fun and games with Dom's EDS problems.  This had ended in him needing bone density scans for osteoporosis etc.  Supposed to be a 2 week wait only for the appt and still nothing after nearly 3 weeks ......

Trust and what it means to me

Though i would start off with a descrioption from the dictionary:


1. Reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, surety, etc., of a person or thing; confidence.
2. Confident expectation of something; hope.
3. Confidence in the certainty of future payment for property or goods received; credit: to sell merchandise on trust.
4. A person on whom or thing on which one relies: God is my trust.
5. The condition of one to whom something has been entrusted.

12. Law . of or pertaining to trusts or a trust.

Where's the year going?

Well its been a very interesting month, it's only March and already we're having beautiful summer weather. Beautiful clear skies, blazing heat and just all round lovely weather. Hopefully it will last for a bit longer as they have said that it will be going soon, which is sad.

Carer's Trust

Caring for Ronnie has so many different factors involved that at times I find it hard to pinpoint what I'm feeling at any one time. There are moments which can be so hard that I just want crawl under my covers and never come out but I know I can't.

I'll only allow that fantasy to last a moment because to indulge anymore would be pointless, ridiculous and partly dangerous. If I allow my self to slump, even for a moment I fear I will stay there.
