Slightly droll this - but let's share the reasons for why we or our disabled dc have been refused help from SS or similar plus some of the least helpful/most banal comments that such agencies have told you:

I'll go first (I have many!):

'Your ds is still very young - we don't usually think about providing respite care until the child is about 7yrs old' (implication: we don't care if you drop dead of exhaustion in the meantime because that will save us money)

'you need to set boundaries' (no, really?)

That doesn't sound right about only starting respite at 7, DD was offered it from 4 and I am sure would have got it earlier had we wanted it.
