Making friends who understand

Hiya I'm sammy I'm 25 and I'm looking after my dad right now, he's 88.
I feel finding people my age who are going through a similar situation would help me massively, as I'm feeling really isolated and alienated by everyone around me having a completely different life right now, I hope everyone's okay and would love to hear from you! ^_^

Your dad was 63 when you were born?!

That's a huge age difference. It is wrong of him to expect you to forgo your young life.
Have you asked Social Services for help?
How much care does he need - not want?

Hi there,

I’m new to this forum but I’m in a similar boat, I’m 24 caring for a mentally I’ll parent and find it difficult and draining. I feel that no one gets me or understands so if you want to talk or need a friend I’m here :)
