Hi,
I’m new here. I’m a wife and mother of one.  I tend to fall into the caretaker role and neglect my own feelings and needs. I’m hoping starting here will help me find support that I often forget to ask for.

Hi @Lovelylady, you've come to a safe platform. 

I have been here since January 2019 and received wonderful support, but also been able to give other survivors a piece of advice. This is a wide forum, members post about struggles, progress, fears, daily mode, music, family life, rehab... just to mention a few examples. Feel free to share your mind. We have moderators here, always available for you. 

You are brave to ask for help. 

Members often offer another safe hugs :hug:Here is one if ok. 

Take care and welcome!

Hey, @Lovelylady!

Welcome to the community! I’m so sorry to hear that you’ve suffered, but I’m glad that you found this place. I tend to take on a caretaker role as well, so I have at least some understanding of what you mean. I hope that sharing whatever you feel comfortable sharing helps you in your healing. We’re here for you!
