Thank you. That really helped me feel less alneI am no longer caring for someone as my husband died coming up for 4 years ago. Your post struck a chord with me though @Angielou. I was working full time as a primary school had teacher when my husband was diagnosed in 2001. I didn’t tell anyone at the school for a long time. Eventually it became necessary to tell my boss and the members of staff who worked closely with me. At the beginning I did find it really, really hard to talk to people at work about it all. Gradually I let more and more people know and found nothing but understanding - I still didn’t really like to talk about it though. That’s the beauty of this forum - you can talk away here and there’s always someone to listen.
Although it was hard for me it must be so much harder for you having a child in the family as well - we didn’t have children.
Wishing you strength.
