Nice to see you on here!
I'm sillyflower, and I care for my mum who has mental Health problems too. I know how hard it is when people just don't understand, and you have to struggle on with no support or get through school/college whilest being busy caring too.

Hello, my name is Hazel. I am 13 and I care for my dad who has a progressive disease known as motor neurone disease. I'm afraid his condition is nothing I can help but sometimes I feel angry and upset at myself for not being able to do anything. I'm afraid it is a terminal disease - inevitable death - and we were recently told he has around eight months to live. We're moving house soon to accommodate him and his needs, and make him as comfortable as possible.
