Caring for others can be an incredibly draining and difficult thing and so we are really glad that you have come to the forums to shar you story - it is a really brave thing to do.
We think that it might be useful for you to have a chat to one of our counsellors who can help you in the moment if you feel stressed and can help point you in the direction of further support if you like. We've put a few numbers below that you can check out if you want.

You can also try webchats if that is easier for you instead of talking on the phone. There are some links below - please note that the webchats aren't 24/7 like the phonelines. If you need someone, you can always call.
Thankyou again Lola Lou for sharing your story with us today, that took a lot of courage. We hope that you can come back and update us if you feel comfortable. There are also lots of great conversations happeneing across the forums so feel free to take a look around.
