You may feel stressed, over-whelmed, alone, drained. Sometimes you may feel angry or guilty because of the changes to your life as a result of caring. Or upset, because of the changes to your relationship with the person you care for.

These feelings can worsen when combined with financial pressure, or fighting for support for the person you look after.

Talking about your feelings can really help. It can be as simple as a chat with an understanding friend or relative, a peer support group or support services.
