How do people cope with juggling care and work? My daughter is nearly 18 and has anorexia. She reverts back to being like a little girl at times, just wanted to sit with me and cuddle all the time. I am with her most of the time but finding it hard to work and be with her. I would like to take a long break from work in order to be with/support her, but financially its not really an option, what do other people do ? I'v used up my carers leave and special leave and about to use my holiday leave - but that wont last long ! Any suggestions please ?
