Just to introduce myself. - Carers UK Forum

Just to introduce myself.

Tell us a bit about yourself here.

I am new to this forum and just wanted to introduce myself. I live in Somerset and have two severely disabled children.....although they are not children any more. I have a 27 year old son who has cerebral palsy an a 25 year old daughter who has down syndrome. Both live at home with my partner and I.
Until only a couple of years ago, I have not had help with care. Three years ago, I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid after becoming increasingly ill over a period of about 6 years. At this point I decided to employ some help and have done so ever since.
Within the last week or two, I have encountered a problem and have had cause to contact Carers UK helpline to ask advice. They have been caring and helpful. It was while looking for help on the internet that I found this forum.
I will post about the problem in general discussions, but wanted to introduce myself to you all first. Image
