I have never posted on an online forum before but it has been really helpful. Thank you.

I think I agree with you Anonymous – he is a 54 year old man and I still sort out half his problems! And no I don’t want him in my house. (My manta was ‘its easier to deal with feeling resentful than guilty’ and ‘if you can help/ support/ manage then you should’ but I think I need to practice the ‘he’s not my responsibility’ one!!)

as an update I spoke to him earlier and said ‘ as and when you decide to move down you need to speak to me well in advance’ and he was shocked and horrified and said ‘I don’t want to live with someone else’s children!’ – this may change and I will always remember the thoughts and opinions people have shared with me today but I did think, ‘yeah, I probably believe that!’
