since you stopped being a carer. - Carers UK Forum

since you stopped being a carer.

For anyone who is bereaved or no longer providing care.
I spotted a discussion on Facebook about ex carers and wanted to see if the feeling was mutual.

Since you stopped being a carer, do you feel you become ill more often?

is it a case of you couldn't be ill when you were a carer because you were needed too much?
or just that you were ill when caring you just couldn't dwell on it?
Very interesting question! I have suffered a number of new ailments since I stopped being a carer (like many carers I just "kept going" during the actual time I was a carer), and I firmly believe that caring does have a long-term inpact on your health and wellbeing - not to mention your career, finances and future pension!
