Hi all - Carers UK Forum

Hi all

Tell us a bit about yourself here.
Hi Carers

I am a carer for my 27 ry old wife who suffers badly with chrons and fibromyalgia (oh god the spelling) and our two amazing kids.
My wife has been telling me for months that i should join a forum or something to talk to other people who are in the same situation as she knows it gets frustraiting for me.

Just here to make new friends and socialize a bit seeing as i dont get much chance to go out and mingle.

Hope you are all having a great day
Hello Edward and welcome to the forum :)

We're a very mixed bunch here - agewise from early 20's to well past retirement age ! and our carees range from the very young to the very old - but we're all very friendly and I promise we don't bite :lol: Between us we probably have experience of dealing with a very wide range of disabilities and illness's so if you any questions someone can probably give you some advice.

We also have an excellent Helpline team who can advise on benefits and most matters related to caring (you'll find their details via the red "Help and Advice" tab at the top of the page.

If you've had a quick look around you will have noted that the forum is split up into various sections - most of our cyber socialisation goes on in Members Corner (especially Roll Call which is our chat over the garden fence time) and General Chit Chat. So just join in where you like or maybe start a new topic of your own.
Hi Edward
Welcome to the forum, have a browse through and feel free to join in wherever you like.
Hello Edward
Hope you find the forum as supportive as I do.
Welcome Edward. Caring is very isolating so I am glad you have found this group. We have a wide range of experience and face a lot of challenges so hopefully you will find it helpful and get support. Helped pull me through some very bad times.
