Hi, just wasn't sure if there were other mums like me who have both illness, it is a daily struggle to get my head around a day, let alone an 11yr old who understands things most 13/14yr olds wouldn't, but doesn't have the emotional maturity to deal with it all.
she is showing signs of depression and have taken her to our gp, who was wonderful and has booked her in for further tests (in case there is anything else going on), but is organising couselling for her.
I have massive guilt trips about how she is , that it is all my fault. I know it isn't, but I still feel that way.
As to the diagnoisis of both illness's, yes, sadly I have both. I know there is a lot of contraversey about it, that you have either one or the other. So please no emails about that I have both.
