Hello. I’m a mum of five sons, two stepsons, I am a full time carer to my youngest son who has spina bifida,special and complicated needs, scoliosis of the spine, double incontinence, I also care for my stepson who has PTSD and COPD and my much older second ex husband who has paranoid schizophrenia. He is not allowed to live with us but I make sure his needs are met ie. shopping etc.
We are registered with gov.uk and have been in lockdown since 22/2/2020.
I suffer with osteoporosis, depression, panic and anxiety and thryroid disease.
We live in a specially adapted property built for my sons needs.
Blimey Heather, you have a lot on your plate!!
