To everyone on here who is worrying, stressing, trying to sort out difficult situations about loved ones, I wish you all hugs and good luck with everything.
Some people just seem to sail through life with no particular problems with illness or family worries, but that's just life.
Those of us who don't just have to get on with it , and on here we are lucky to have a place to 'talk' with people who don't judge and will give support in whatever way they can.
To those of us who are carers in whatever fashion ,
you still have to live , because you don't know for how long you will be in the position of being a carer or in the position of sorting others lives out. You have to make the best decisions at the time for that person. You can do no more. You will do your very best. You can do no more. So, if you feel you need a holiday, and it's possible ,take one. If you want to do anything at all and it's possible, do try and do it, because as I said you have to 'live' otherwise you will not be fit mentally or physically to carry on. I hope I am not speaking out of term but I am speaking from experience.
Best of luck to everyone. x
