CARERS
By Linda Dunn
Linda's daughter Katy has M.E. Linda finds it frustrating that little recognition is made by the government of carers and the time and energy that they devote.

Your thoughts about this video

    

Diana Driver
As an ME sufferer myself and a carer of three elderly parents my heart goes out to Linda and Katy. The men in their black suits do not know what goes on behind closed doors and they don't care so long as it's someone else's problem and not theirs. Being a carer has held up any progress that I may have made with my ME and it worries me what happens to the 'oldies' when I am in too much pain to get out of bed in a morning and can't tend to them. Carers can't be ill.
