Have you got a carer's association near you. They do 'social' things for carers like you.

As Hils says, this is a 'Haven' in more ways than one.

I am so sorry to hear about your husband Karen. This is the greatest bunch of people here in this forum that I have been so fortunate to meet. Anytime you need to vent, there is always somebody to hear you. We are open 24/7 and always have that pot of tea, coffee or hot chocolate waiting. There's always lots of good laughs to be had too.

Thank you all for your concern,

There is a lot of support with breaks for carers etc. My Doctor and my family are forever reminding me. The problem is if I leave Geoff for even an hour in the care of even people I trust, I just can't settle.
As soon as I get to my chosen visit or time out, I'm unsettled and wanting back home fast.
I've tried several times to no avail. I just can't leave him. He's worth every minute of my time when I think back to the previous yrs before the stroke. He cared for me, spoilt me, was always with me. We even worked together, lol!
I'm not unhappy, in fact I enjoy being home. Just sad. Sad for what we lost. But friends online save my sanity when Geoff is in bed early, every night and the walls close in. EW! Gonna make ME cry with all this soppy stuff, haha. I count my blessings. I still have him when I could so easily have lost him.
Now it's time to stop pulling everyones heartstrings, lol.
I love the message boards and I've picked up some handy hints in the 'how to' section. Love this site!

Idea Arrow Thought I would BUMP this thread. We have some new people whose profiles do not list a location. And I still get a charge out of hearing where everyone is and what some of their local customs or idioms are. Very Happy

Hi all.

I altered my profile a few days ago as some thought I was in Manchester, USA? I am in the UK, very close to Manchester Airport.

This yr my Husband and I will celebrate our 30th Anniversary. I care for my Husband 24/7. Have done for 7 yrs. He had a massive stroke at the age of 50 and life as we knew it changed forever.

That's why I'm a hobby person now. Knitting is my 1st love. I love to cross stitch, and I'm also a lover of jigsaw puzzles. It's a lonely life being a carer. Amazing how friends you thought were for life suddenly have no time. I think our situation scares them off. It's hard as my Husband changed greatly after his stroke.

I'm glad I joined this group. It's comany without having to make tea and wash up after, lol!! What I'd give to have somebody make a cuppa for me once in a while, haha.


Karen Hope you find new friends here and that you feel better beeing here!
Best wishes for you and your husband.

If you click where it says "Profile" at the top of the page, you can add a location to your profile so that we can see where you're from when we're reading posts.

Lin: do you mean the Views column with numbers underneath? I think that is the number of times people have looked at that topic.
