Mrs M

by Morag
(England)

Unfortunately mt dad got run over and passed away in 2008. My mum couldn't cope, I had to do everything. I was then 34 with 3 children, 6 months 3 and 5 years old.


Then a year passed and mum fell over who now is 81 and dad was 86, when he died. I have always looked after mum and dad. I still have the duties of being mum now to four children, my mum is deteriorating and has been off and on antibiotics for 6 months. My worry is that she never got over loosing my dad, or her bleed between brain and scull plus slight brain damage she suffered when she fell.

I would love to convert my house for mum to come and stay with us, but cannot afford it as she is in council property, I wouldn't have to go from Romford to Elmpark each day to make sure she is well, but there could be worse things in life.
