Please read my stories with an open mind and heart. I write these stories as entertainment and to record my stories as a carer not to blame or offend anyone.

The families tend to be exceptionally supportive and kind. They seem to want to compensate for the lack of care and support we get from the agency. I can vent and tell the family about the different problems I face but I cannot barge in and ‘charge dad with abusive behaviour’ because after all he is his/her dad. I would not want anyone judging my parents either. It is perfectly understandable. I always share my concerns with them and asks for their support when out of my wits. It is really hard that I cannot really share my experiences with them as I live them because that would probably upset them, neither can I discuss them with the company. I log them for the archive.
