Understandably there are many people who are feeling low and depressed, grief, the lockdown, finance, family situations and lack of social contact all have taken their toll. It is hard to stay strong in body and mind when we are feeling worried, but it is important to try before depression really takes hold.We need to find the inner strength just to achieve a little goal each day, something at the end of the day you can look back and say I did do something today I can do something else tomorrow.Let's share some of our success, I find personal chats on Silversurfers helpful not actually knowing who you are talking to stops barriers that are in place with other friends and family as you can always delete them.Can't do that face to face. Letting everybody share a piece of good news would raise the spirits of many and maybe provide hope for the future that things will improve
We have cared for our son for 20 years during a diagnosed severe mental illness. There has never been a day in that 20 years that we it has not infringed on our daily life and how we wished things could be different.One of the main problems is his lack of insight and reasoning into his condition.He has his own secure tenancy and when the Covid lockdown started we were left completely on our own to care for him. Even although my husband is over 70 and I have other health problems.Because of his vulnerability and his disbelief in the pandemic he was a target for unsavoury people with no protection to visit his flat putting us in danger. It was inevitable he would need to be hospitalised which was horrific and he has been in a psychiatric unit for 5 months. It has now been suggested that they will let him home if we care for him but my husband and I have said we will only do it if we get the vaccine. We have been told we will not get it and it was even suggested by one doctor that we are being selfish to not do it and let him home.What do others think?
HiMy partner is having to care for a family member full time at the moment and our only contact is through email.I feel totally alone and wonder if there is a forum for families of carers, that someone could recommend.

Hi I don't know if I'm doing this right but this is my third attempt. Here's hoping; I suffer from agoraphobia and panic attacks I have done for over forty years but I have never chatted to anyone else who suffers so the reason for the post is to see if anybody else is the same as me and would like to chat.Let's hope I've done it right this time fingers crossed
