Hi Martin I took the plunge and called our local carers support group yesterday (who are actually not that local - 35 miles away). They emailed me a list of up and coming activities/events in the broad surrounding area, and there were a couple which were "take your caree, have a coffee with the othe...
Ditto Natalie. Just sobbed down the phone to my doctor. Sometimes the frustration and futility of it all is just overwhelming. What is your caring situation?

Holding on to hope is one of the hardest things to do, but trust me, you need to in order to protect your own sanit...

Hooray - great to hear some good news :D
