Maybe caring makes us anti social or insular ?

Ha ha - a Carers' Cave Network - with no phone line and sound proof doors :)

I have a suspicion that most people who become carers are quite independent and get on with it type of people - I think that's why some people couldn't do it in a million years and others seem to end up doing it over and over again.

I do find for me, personally, the tiredness is a huge issue - I just don't have the energy to deal with other people. Add to that I think most carers become experts with regard to the particular medical conditions they deal with, whilst most of the people around you don't really understand, plus you get so adept at having to deal with an army of professionals and sometimes some really quite huge problems that other people's troubles just aren't on any kind of scale that is recognisable - I listen to people talking about 'problems' that wouldn't even register with me as a problem, it's less than I deal with on a normal day so you just get used it. So I suppose we all end having to be quite tough, quite resilient, quite self reliant, quite knackered and often quite skint as well. Definitely cave dwelling time, I think!
I don't get many nuisance phone calls,but I've heard that it's possible to get on a list of people who don't want 'em.This is Ofcom on it: http://consumers.ofcom.org.uk/phone/tac ... #stopcalls

All you have said is spot on but you forgot one thing........ the incredible sense of humor we develop which helps us through those tough days :)
