I have been pondering over a comment made on a blog.
Most of you will not know that I am carer for one of my girls.When she was born prematurely she was given five days(if lucky) to live. She was six weeks premature,...she had a complete blockage of her nasal passages, and had to breathe through her mouth. As a baby has no control over it't tongue, this is a huge problem.The operation she needed could not be carried out until she was four years old as the bones that need drilling through as not hard until that time, and it is a one chance operation.
We did manage to struggle through some very hard times with her, as if she so much as caught a cold, she would stop breathing. Nevertheless, we made it through, and apart from not being able to handle money, time, cooking, and transport, she is the same as any of us.
Now a few years ago, my daughter had a breakdown, and we did not know which way to turn, eventually we got her to see a psychiatrist, and there were other problems that arose with her.
We had six month's of uncertainty with her, but luckily she was okay in the end.
Did I come on here for people to help me?
No I did not, I came on this site as a kind of escapism to have a laugh and chat, and to get away from problems.
We can chat to people, try to understand people, and help people through bad times, as have done on this site...but some people need professional help, and we cannot do anything about that.
I never wanted people to help me as there was very little they could do.I just wanted their company,(if you will) but problems have to be sorted by ourselves.
I feel very lucky to have friends on here.I get some laughs , and some interesting reads.
Thank you all.
