Miss Von Trapp
[Mood |tiredtired]

Lone Bird


The cuckoo flaps and harries.
Loudly demanding --
Crying for attention --
Like a drowning man
Threatening to drag me under.

I am not his mother.
I have nothing left to give him.
No strength --
No energy --
Bled dry of sympathy.

Yet he will not fly this nest --
Afraid of what lies beyond this fragile security.

.....................................

My long-term severely depressive ex-bf is still living with me rent-free in the spare room, even though I can't afford it... The doctor/NHS system is failing to get anything done atm, so he has nowhere else to go:/

I split up with him in Nov 2002, and he lived with me (in the spare bedroom) without paying anything toward bills, food or rent until Dec 2003, when I couldn't afford it any longer and sent him to his fathers...which is why I'm dragged under with horrendous debt:/

He came back in February...was supposed to be packing to move away, but got stuck as he broke up with his girlfriend. Now he's having drug treatment, and the psychologist/council is supposed to be getting him somewhere to live...but they are taking forever, and I'm running out of energy.

Having been his carer pretty much for the last 6 years (we were together as a couple for almost 10 years) I am all he has left, and it falls on me to look after him with this illness...

I think the above says it all.

For as much as it's rotten for me right now with not coping too well...it's a hundred times worse for him being ill in this situation:((

Keep it to yourselves, ok?

Well naturally- but I'll be thinking of you both, and hoping something useful happens soon.

The very best of luck to you both, it's a shame when people fall through the gaps in life. Let's hope the relevant authorities pull their finger out and enable both of you to progress.

It takes alot of strength to do what you have done for him.

I'm slowly running out of strength though...I think it's mostly due to food/cash lack...

Should improve once my pay goes in:)

Thankyou:)

Should work now, I got rid of the 'Hutta' thingy...those ones always require you to put your username, password and tick the log-in box:/

Odd!!

Thankyou:))

I'm dragging him off to the docs tommorrow morning, means I'll have to stay up for 'open surgery' between 9 and 10:30am after work...but he needs to go...

Wandering around wailing and wanting to die atm:/

(he's run out of Lustral)

What a sacrifice you made... your intimate life, I mean, your ability to live something with someone else... during all those months! And you had that long distance relationship that ended so bad (when we became lj friends - I even want to say simply friends). Apparently, you're going to win your freedom back tomorrow. That's great news. I send you hugs, and smiles, and scary stares to make you laugh. :)

Well ho hum!

I even gave up a place in 1997 to do a degree in Nursing in London...but my duty of care was to those close to me at the time, and I considered it more important:)

I haven't had much luck, have I? *shrug*

And, yes, I also consider you a friend...disregard the 'lj' prefix there:))

*enjoying the hugs and smiles*

*giggling at the scary stares!*
