Hi, my name is June, I love and care for my sister very much, but feel tired and suicidal now after 40 odd years. I had someone from social services come and give me a carers assessment today. I really hope that they can help us, we have no one else. I registered with this site ages ago but she advised me to make my first post as she recommends this forum.I teach computer skills when I can ,am a qulified IT technician have worked in animal rescue ,love history, genealogy and cooking, God it sounds like Im joining a dating agency!!!!

Hi June,
A big welcome to the forum. Glad you have decided to post and hope that with the assessment as well, life will take a turn for the better for you. There are lots of wonderful people on this forum who have certainly helped me on many an occasion over the recent years and I know they will be there for you too. Have a look around the site, there are several sections to browse through and many have a "chat" each day on Roll Call in the Carer to Carer section. Its a good place to visit, particularly when life is feeling very difficult as you mentioned in your post.

Welcome again.

Hello, June.

I am so pleased you did make that first posting. But I am sorry to hear you are so worn out and in such low spirits. I hope your carers assessment will be of help. But being here will be of help. Of that I am certain. Its all too easy to feel totally exhausted and overwhelmed when loved ones rely upon us. The sheer responsibility is a heavy load, and we can only do our best.

Plenty of support here. Folk here really do understand the stresses and strains of being a carer. Always a sympathetic ear and always some kind and gentle advice. Sounds like you need that right now, June.

Welcome. Its good to hear from you. Take care Image
