Just want to say hi!

Hi everyone,

I joined up a month or so ago but just wanted to say hi and get to know some people. I care for my husband who has bipolar and dyspraxia and I'm just looking to meet some people who maybe deal with similar things to me.

I've cared for him on my own for a few years now and I do have friends and family around me, but I do feel really lonely sometimes. I struggle sometimes with calling myself a carer as I feel I'm doing the same as anyone who loves someone would, but then sometimes I'm so exhausted with it all that I know it's more than that.

Anway looking forward to meeting all the amazing people here who do above and beyond - your stories and posts have been a real inspiration to me.

Sharon x

I'm in south Oxfordshire and we don't really have problems with flooding as we're a bit away from the river, but last year was awful flooding in the central bit. My friend was getting married and I was drenched going from the car to the door Image

Thanks Rosemary. I've been having a look around and everyone has been so lovely.

It's nice to have somewhere to come, even just for a chat Image
