    Hi soldieron, welcome. Have a look through the threads in our Supporting Family & Friends forum, you will find many of our members in a similar situation who will understand what you are going through.

    You might also want to check out the Looking after yourself section on our website.

    Hi soldieron,

    I'm sorry to hear this, it must be challenging. No doubt there is much info on this site and some of it could help you. Is it possible to work a bit of 'me' time into your days? It might take some planning but you deserve to take some time out doing things that bring you peace and happiness.

    Talk any time. Jack
