    What support is available to lone disabled parents in this corona lock down ?

    I have M.E, I’m in utter agony, can’t take pain killer & I’m fighting to stay awake. My child is 5 yrs old. I’ve been I’ll since Friday.

    Any services available for support ?

    Your best bet is to phone your gp and your childs health visitor – gp for your physical symptoms and your health visitor may be able to provide you with information about additional support with your child. You could also contact an M.E or Covid 19 support group for some further information. And you can always phone the Gingerbread helpline as they specialise in single parents and I am sure they would have some helpful info for you. Im sorry you’re going through such difficulty, have you no family or friends who could maybe help? I hope you manage to get some additional support and stay safe
