    Hello to everyone. It is comforting to know that there are so many people on here willing to give support and advice. I found this site by accident and have found out so much since doing so. At times being a carer can be so lonely even though you have family around you. It is so good to be able to talk to others who can relate to what you are going through. I know now that a lot of what I am experiencing as a carer of someone with Alzheimers is what is to be expected and not only happening to me. Thank-you to all who have helped me so far and to those who may perhaps do so in the future. It is so good to know I am among so many new friends.

    Hello Julie

    Welcome to TP.

    I also found this site by accident , in 2006, and have been here ever since.
    I hope you get the support you need, I`m sure you will. I agree with you about the loneliness. Hopefully, now you have found TP, life will be better for you.

    Hello Julie

    I completely agree with you, this site is a huge help, seeing other people are feeling and going through what you are. I think it makes the whole experience less lonely and frightening. And although everytime I see someone new I feel sad becasue it means another person is going through a traumatic experience, I am glad the friendship and support here has been found xxx

    Hi Julie,

    I am also very new to this site & so far I have just been reading other peoples postings, have not yet had the courage to 'jump in'! I agree with all that you say, it is so good to know 'we are not alone'

    Take care,

    love Dottie

    Hello Julie,
    My gran always used to say a problem shared is a problem halved. But sometimes it's hard to find people who you can share with. This forum is a lifeline to many and I never thought I would spend so much time sharing my problems on the internet - of all places! But it works. And like you I have made new friends.
