This was very similar to our families experience and it was so distressing. I used all my leave entitlements trying to keep my 16 year old teenager afloat. After my leave ran out I begged to go part time and was (reluctantly) "allowed" to take a paycut to work part time.... time and counselling (and time) saw us all get through but I feel so sad for families who go through this. IT WAS SO HARD.
