That is not actually the case, I happen to disagree with you on some issues, as you are a somewhat prolific poster it is hardly surprising if you get a number of responses to your posts some of which may not share your point of view and some of those will invitably be from the same members, this is a discussion board, not a soapbox.
I do not happen to agree with your presumption that a degree makes someone more capable of dealing with the issues which carers have to face than carers who do not have the benefit of a higher education, it belittles the many very capable carers who do absolutely amazing things on behalf of those for whom they care, some of whom will have left school without formal qualifications. It also creates a false hierarchy where some assume that they are more capable than other carers because of some attribute which they ascribe to themselves. I believe that we need to respect each other regardless of academic achievement, the ability to be articulate, age, etc., some of your posts appear not to do this.
