After a visit from a GP carers support worker she decided I should be referred to social services as I care for my husband 24/7 without assistance . She thought I should have some flexible break vouchers and my husband should go to hospice for one day a week on a short therapy counselling course. Since her visit I have had over the past 24 hours 3 phone calls from 3 different people at social services, all asking the same questions.
The best of which was " is my emotional and physical health affected". I wanted to reply that I was thriving and had never been better.
Another one was " do you do any volunteering work ".......now when would I fit that in ? Then , "is your husband able to go out on his own on a bus " What !!!!!!!!!
Is it me ??? I despair.
