Hi all, I am just trying to find out if there are any other carers on HubPages besides myself. By carer I don't mean the paid kind, I mean the ones who care for a family member and are paid a pittance for it by the government (in the UK anyway, I don't know how things are for carers in America). My brother is severely autistic and my Mum has mental health problems. Since there are no specific forums for carers on HubPages I was advised to use the family and parenting forum to see if anyone responded.
I am sure lots of people do this...
My mum cared for my grandmother who died of cancer. Took her to all the treatments...
I think you might be looking for support regarding Autism and Mental health issues?
Maybe try that as a title.... There is a guy Baileybear whose son has Asbergers... which is in lame men's terms a higher functioning Autism.... With new and different challenges...
I thought this could be about foster care... Or actual paid caring
I am fully satisfied with you that being a carer, But how would I carer of my skin.

Yes, WHAT??? Anyway, thankyou Abbasangel, I suppose I am kind of looking for support but more with regard to the actual day-to-day psychological/ emotional/ physical/ financial consequences of being a carer for anyone with any condition rather than specifically about the conditions themselves, for which I am already aware of support available. I was also thinking to try and raise awareness in non-carers of just what it takes to be one - so I thought I would start by asking whether there are any others like me on HubPages, then maybe we could have some discussions etc.
