Hi There, I've been ill for many years with fibromyalgia and ME. I'm going through a particularly bad patch and can barely get out of bed with pain and exhaustion. My daughter who's 12 has been behaving really badly, refusing to help out around the house, or do as she is told. I need help to prepare food and keep the house habitable but she seems to think that she shouldn't have to help out and is generally making it very clear that she doesn't give a toss about me. The inevitable conflict is very stressful and is making me even more ill. I have always tried to shield her from the effects of my illness, but it's just not possible anymore. What have other parents with these conditions experiences been?
