I think I need a care giver support group. Maybe on line, or maybe locally in person. How do people go about starting care giver support groups? Or do you have links to groups on line that are already active. I can't seem to sort it out on the website as searching care giver support groups doesn't bring up direct info.
I'm 2 years into supporting my 28 year old son, so new to the role in many ways. He stays with me, is fairly independent, but can't work enough to support himself, works to much for SSA....etc. He's young, I'm not. Mostly, it's his persistent low spirits and irritability that concern me now, in the dead of a hard Vermont winter. My friends are compassionate, but mostly they feel badly for us, or give us "oh everything will be alright" treatment. I'm not so sure about that.
Thanks ~ Margaret
