A couple of weeks back I posted on here and deleted it as I was proof reading it over and over to make sure I didn't upset my Mum who posts on here and also I don't want to look like I'm feeling sorry for myself. So I'll try again after editing it almost daily.
My Dad suffers with PSP as some of you will already know. My mum and dad still live in Buxton, Derbyshire and I have lived approximately 30 miles away in Sheffield for the last 8 years, my Dad hasn't been well for about 3-4 years? I work full time, times are quite hard financially for me as they are for a lot of people my age (I'm 33) so I can't afford an awful lot of time off. Up until recently I was visiting and taking my Dad out on an almost weekly basis, which of course is nice for me and him to spend time together and also gives my mum some time off. I've not been able to go over for a few weeks and as I work in Sales, with Christmas approaching I can't see this getting any better. I also don't have my own transport.
I just wondered if anyone on here has been in or is in a similar situation and if you can offer me any advice? Sometimes I've thought about quitting work and going back to help them out but my Dad put so much effort into getting me on my own 2 feet that I know he'd be upset underneath it all if I did that.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
