Anybody eles feel alone …
Hi @nanny.g, thank you for your post, I’m really sorry to hear you’re feeling alone.
FamilyHub is the perfect place to chat to people whose family situations are similar to yours, so hopefully someone will be able to share their experiences with you and help you to feel less alone.
If you feel able, why not share a little bit about you - it might help someone come forward. Are you a parent/carer to someone with a learning disability?
All the best,
Totally agree am a parent of a 17 year old and fear for the future…if I feel alone and isolated now how is it going to be when he finishes education I can only see less benefits and less time to have any life outside of my son.
I love him to bits but I cannot be the the best for him if I am not doing the best for me also.
I feel like a slave if I am being totally honest with no rights to life myself
Im raising 2 grandaughters 6yrs an 3yrs ’ both have many issues one diagnosed the other going through the prosses etc (very short version )i gave up uni ’ work to take on this roll of mum again ’ but just feel so alone ’ our friends vanished (ok so tgeres have flown the nest i get it ) school play ground some parents say hi etc ’ but no real chat coffee catch up kinda thing like when my own where young ’ i just feel alone ’ im married an have a wonderfull hubby but hes not one for going out meals ’ films etc an is happy ploding along making an doing things …maybe its me just being silly x
Its so hard isnt it x
Hi @nanny.g yes I feel so alone and isolated as a carer. There is no answer to it either which makes it harder but having places like this forum does really help.
Yes! I’m new to this forum, I have a 13 year old daughter with asd, ADHD, Epilepsy and learning disability. I am a single parent, and have been since I was pregnant. My family don’t help or support me, I feel totally exhausted and isolated all the time. I know I’m a good mum and dedicate my life to helping my daughter in every way I can, it’s very intense as it is just the two of us most of the time. I guess there are a lot of parents that feel the same as I do.
hi nanny g I completely understand where your e coming from I felt the same untill I became involved with carers support group and then joined the commitee at his day centre . Its a great way of meeting people in the same boat as yourself It really helps to talk with them ,socialise and help raise money etc theres always someone out there to help if you ask hope this gives you some help Pauline
