Hi I am fairly new to this and not sure what I am doing.
To start I have looked after mum for five years and now she is in a residential home. I feel very sad but I am trying to cope on an everyday basis. I really wish mam was back so I could have a good old chat with her.
My family are not near even though they are a phone call away. sometimes I could just do with a big hug. varbell

Hi Varbell
I've only been looking after mum for 6 months now full time....I shared her care with my brother since Feb 2005 so by your standards I'm very new to it all.....you've got a lot to give to the rest of us and its the hugs that keep us all going.....so I'm sending you a big hug now.....:)
Love xx
