Sorry, no ideas here @outlander. Are you after counselling style support or information-required support or..??
(Only answer that if it's not too confidential!)

Yeah, I get that.
I talk through a lot of the more personal stuff with the psychologist I see regualrly, although of course she's not available "on call". Can't remember if you're seeing anyone?

Oooh yeah it's hard. Studies show with unfortunate consistency that carers have the worst stats for physical and mental health. Worse than people on DSP. (Though that includes some of us carers too...).
So all the more important that we stay alert to our own needs too, and do something about meeting them.
