about

Carers Need Help and Support Too: One Woman’s Personal Journey through the Sacrifice of Caring is one woman’s story about life as a carer. The ups and downs, trials and tribulations, pain and exhaustion of caring while trying to run two businesses and make something of herself in the hope of a half way decent future.

Carers Need Help and Support Too is one woman’s story about not having choices, options or help as a human being, let alone a carer. A woman who didn’t choose the job of caring but had the job dumped on her as the youngest of the family.

Carers Need Help and Support Too is one woman’s story about the verbal and emotional abuse caring can entail. From a parent’s anger, hatred and resentment at their own lot in life, to screaming matches where they can’t deal with an adult daughter for a carer who’s only trying to make life for them both, better.

Carers Need Help and Support Too is just one woman’s journey through a life she did not expect, did not see coming, did not want and definitely does not want for rest of her life. What about what she wants and needs? What about her life and future? What about her emotional and mental health?

Not everyone’s situation is the same, but if you have cared for an adult, parent or partner who is head strong, stubborn, dictatorial and filled with resentment at their situation, then Carers Need Help and Support Too: One Woman’s Personal Journey through the Sacrifice of Caring will resonate with you.

 

*****

This book does contain some swearing.

*****

A reviewer on another website described this book as a rant. And it is. That's the point of the subtitle, One Woman’s Personal Journey through the Sacrifice of Caring. It is MY journey through the sacrifice of caring because my life has been sacrificed for the care of my mother while my siblings don't even come near us. I have gone without a life, partners, kids, a home, friends, a job, career, a life...because it's been sacrificed. So yes, this book is a rant, an angry rant because that's what I am. Angry, hateful and resentful after nearly twenty years of having my life sacrificed and not knowing how the hell to get out of it unless one of us dies...or one of us wins a house or lotto. And this book is the story of it.
