Have an ongoing bowel problem and going from doctor to,doctor lots of pain and husband had stroke end of 2013. Vascular dementia, loss of peripheral sight and not much mobility. Godmother had heart attack same week and 4 months later daughter had emergency Caesarian. I had just retired and every thing happened at once. House needs lots doing and husband hadn't been doing things in run up to stroke.
Trying to cope with everything (normally a coper) but lost contact with lots if people, no close friends in nearby vicinity or neighbours and no support - husband doesn't need care as such but personality has changed. I am at my wits end, in pain, lost 3 stone at least in weight so clothes don't fit and can't find help anywhere. Just need a good friend to understand and chat and listen. Whole network closed down. Bad day - not sleeping and crying - can't get going. Can't feel my usual busy self. 17 months of misery and got worse in last 3 - 4 months. Drs don't seem to,understand and dint want to rely on tablets. Sitting in armchair too much. Everything landed on my shoulders and I've sunk.
