My partner and I are 37, he has been diagnosed with brittle asthma after having a near fatal attack last year. He is in and out of hospital and has recently lost his job due to health. It's a difficult, frightening situation. We have 3 children and I work full time for the NHS. His health has deteriorated over the past 3 weeks.
I just wanted to start a thread for people caring for their partners. I'd like to hear about other people's experiences with their employer when having to take time off to care. Also about stress whilst caring (ie it's scary sometimes!).
