Hi Lynda,

Sorry to hear things are so hard. It doesn't sound like an easy situation to be in but I hope being on this forum helps. Although I can't offer much advice or help for your circumstances, there are many people on the board with many different experiences so I hope you can find support here. As for being sick of caring, I think most of us have been there (or are there now) so we may know some of how you feel.

Welcome, Linus
....Welcome to the Forum. I'm so sorry you have had such a horrid time. You have come to the right place to let off steam and hopefully get some much needed cheering up. This is my second week here and I've learnt such a lot with the help of these great people, and my own much needed cheering. One day at a time will make such a difference to you.

Take care,

mrsblint

I do feel sorry for you - you have already done so much for others in your life. I think once you've been a carer, you always will be. Welcome to the forum and I hope you will keep posting, if only to have someone to talk to. Believe me, I'm not through with caring yet, but I get heartily sick of it too. I hope you will get some comfort from being on here with us all.

Chris
