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.

If HubPages chooses your Hub as HOTD because it stands out from the rest, why not get paid for it?

Would it be possible to start a forum for carers? (Carers, that is, of the unpaid kind who look after a friend or relative) I can't find one on Hub as yet, but I don't know whether there is a demand for it on this site. I only know that I am a carer and can't find any forums for this...
