You don't always know what to do for the best when your kids are ill and as a parent we really feel it. But it's important that you get some rest too so that you can be strong when your son needs you. If your partner is able let them do some of the looking after today and do something that helps you to relax and as you say have a bath before you go to bed tonight. Hope you all feel better soon.



Hi mystery reader, Thankyou so much got your reply just relaxing tonight I actually had a small glass of rose which I haven't had in around 8 months was scared of having a drink , having a lot of anxiety issues , especially with health too , but decides Iv got to take things slow , sleep is my only problem now Soo it may take a little time to work on that I'm gonna not try to make it become an issue though & not get anxiety about sleep. Big hugs Binkynoo x
