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.

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 am fully satisfied with you that being a carer, But how would I carer of my skin.
