Hello Fairymagic,

I can understand how you feel. There are two of us looking after my mother-in-law and we still find it all very difficult.

I cannot offer any practical advice because I have not been in your position.

I have an idea that you may find something to raise your spirits if you have a look at the forum in this link. It is not a carers forum, it is a group for people who want to talk things over and maybe ask for others to pray for them or just lend a sympathetic ear. It is for anyone who is open hearted and has a caring attitude. There are peole on the group who have had to cope with all sorts of circumstances. You can read the posts withut joining. I write under the name ralph1303.


I suggest you look back through the message archives and dig about.

Best wishes,
Hi and welcome to the forum
My husband has multiple health problems and people often say we should have our own parking space at the local A&E. You sound like you are tired out perhaps it might be worth visiting the GP and getting yourself checked out ( I know carers are not very good at taking care of themselves but if your not well it will make looking after your husband harder to do)
hello and welcome

Fairymagic..sorry your going thr a rough time at the moment.

I hope your op goes well and you recover quickly.
Sorry i dont have an practical advice, but thinking of you x
thankyou just feeling sorry for myself Image
Hello fairymagic, I dont think you are feeling sorry for yourself, and even if you are, what is wrong with that! We are all entitled to having down days, why me days, and I think this is the place to scream and shout and others will listen and understand.
Love Marg Farmer.x
