Hi my name is Charlotte, I’m 36 and I’m new here. I’ve been a carer for 11 years caring for my Wife who suffers with debilitating anxiety and depression and also medical problems from complications from a hysterectomy. Also in that time I have cared for my Father-In-Law who has Vascular Dementia. I have cared for my Auntie who had Cervical Cancer who passed away in January 2017 and my Mum who had Pancreatic Cancer who passed away in December 2018. I have never been on a forum for Carers. I have just kind of carried on. I look forward to reading everyone’s posts.
Good to see you here!

Carers are the best people to understand. What it feels like to be a carer for another human being. And are good listeners and try to be non-judgemental.
What an extensive caring history! We look forward to hearing of your experiences.
What brings you to a forum now? Do you have a particular concern or need? Most of us first arrive here at a time of crisis, exhaustion or anger… or sometimes all three!
