Hi I need some advice, me and my partner have been going through a rough patch for a while, but now it’s got to the point where she attempted an over dose, she is frequently self harming. I’ve tried so much to help her instead of running away. But now it’s got to the point where I can’t do it anymore it’s not fair on my 2 children. In an ideal world i never want to take our children away from there mum, I’m worried that will make her worse, i currently work full time and pretty much a full time dad at home aswell. I have looked online with regards to applying for accommodation though the local council temparely, and help support financially, because i would have to cut my hours down at work. but I don’t one where to start…. am I doing the right thing? Just Need someone to talk to about this… if anyone does read this I appreciate your time. Thank you.
