Work, kids and PD

I’m sure I’m not alone in this, but OMG managing working from home, home schooling the kids, helping the kids through their realisation and understanding of how poorly dad is now that they are home 24/7 and hubbies PD is really taking its toll.
PD seems to be going downhill at the moment, we are waiting for the GP to action the new med changes and so that’s hard enough without everything else in the mix.
Have no family to talk to, obviously can’t do the usual meet up with friends for a cuppa that I didn’t realise was an essential part of my coping strategy and so feel a bit overwhelmed. As I’m sure we all do.
