Sorry, need a bit of a rant. I know I'm not alone, so would welcome advice. I work full time and care for my dad who I live with. Thankfully he's only in the early stages, has carers AM and lunch, and has good and bad days. What I find so frustrating (apart from the usual communication problems etc), is finding time for me. People say to me, "come out for dinner tonight" cos they don't realise it needs planning. I've thought about attending groups and/or a café, but they're all during the day. I do things at home to relax, but I never go out any more. I was due to go away for a few days earlier in the year, but the care agency let me down on the extra calls so had to cancel. Rant and self pity over with for now - thanks for listening. Hugs and love to all of you affected by this horrible, horrible disease - whether you've been diagnosed yourself or are a carer.
