Im just wondering if theres any young carers on here?
Im 20 and would love to have people around this age bracket to talk to.
I love and respect my elders too though 💖

I wish I could think of some carers who are under 30 on here so I could try and connect you with them, but I none come to mind off the top of my head.
Will have a think about it!
I hope someone else chimes in if they are under 30 or can think of another Forumnite that this age.
Can I ask what type of carer are you (caring for a parent, child, partner)? Maybe that will also help with finding some members.

Lol, I don't think you are the only one. I know we have had some people caring for the grandparents or parents, but I just can't remember who they are.

their forums arent active @Darcy and being on here is awesome
but if you dont mind..... how do you cope with all the responsibility of being a carer, how often do you try and take time out fo yourself and for how long (1 hour, the day?)
