I don't often post on here but feel drawn to do so now! How cleverly Susie511 sums up the situation that many of us find ourselves in. I sometimes feel in a difficult place, being full-time carer to mother with Alzheimer's, having given up a good job to do so. Also, our grandchildren live too far away to help with regular caring - what we would give to be able to help out. Who needs to buy self-help books when they are part of Gransnet? Just post on here and you will be flooded with great advice, some of which may be helpful in your situation, and will definitely raise a smile to boot!
