If you're still struggling to cope...
It is very often difficult to talk about the stress and emotions involved with caring.
If you feel that you're not managing very well, please try to not feel guilty about it.
There is help and support available to you.
You may benefit from counselling or another talking therapy, which may be available online.
We recommend that you talk to your GP as soon as possible about your feelings.
