I'm the sole caregiver for my mate, who is seriously ill, both mentally and physically. It's literally crushing me, and I haven't the faintest idea what to do.

If I can't share my feelings on this forum (they're "not in the tenor and spirit of this forum"), then I see no point in continuing to participate. I re-read the "community guidelines", and I have no earthly idea what I've done wrong, but I really haven't the surplus energy necessary to pursue the matter. If posts are limited to shallow "Pollyanna" superficialities, I obviously need to seek support elsewhere.

I need help, not a librarian telling me to keep my voice down.

Best of luck to all of you.

Hello Piobair, you are a caregiver so why would you think you don’t belong on here? I don’t understand.

There has been some upset on here lately so a reminder of the community guidelines was mentioned that’s all. We have over 5,000 community members so it’s quite a balancing act to keep everyone happy.

You’ve done nothing wrong so far as I know so please share your feelings and thoughts whenever you wish.

I just want to say how much I personally admire what you do as it certainly can’t be easy. I hope you stay and can find the help you so desperately need. Take care xxx

Dear Piobar, So sorry you don't wish to participate here after all. It's just a question of observing the rules which are in place for the comfort of all members, but if that's not to your taste, you are equally welcome not to join us after all.Thanks for taking a look at least and I wish you both well for the future.


tthis is NOT a pollyanna site at all

neither is it a site for conducting private disputes of any kind

we are all very supportive of each other but have no spare energy for such things.

our admin is very protective of us like this and there has been an upset recently
