How Has Being A Carer Impacted You Personally?

Hi Everyone,

I need help from all my followers that are carer’s.  I have a really quick questionnaire (link above) that can really make you think. I want to hear about your personal experience of being a carer and how it has impacted you as an individual for an upcoming article.

Your answers will surprise you! It’s amazing all the emotions that can sit below the surface until we are challenged to think about them.

Have fun 🙂

PS. I would really appreciate it if you could forward this to other carer’s you know.

Thank You

Thank you to the Mamamia website for publishing my post ‘How-To Guide – From the mother of a child with a disability’.

I am happy with the result with a mixed discussion taking place. All opinions had passion and sparked many smaller debates between readers.

I did not expect to create instant change or be lavished with love, sympathy or even understanding. All I wanted was to convey a snapshot of the internal emotions and dialogue we carry with us in a way that would promote similar feelings in the reader, whether they agree with the article or not.

I would, however, like to thank the people that shared the piece on facebook and twitter, sent their heart warming positive messages and those who defended me and the very basis of the article. Thank you x
