Looking around in the real world for any help that might be out there in the way of support for people who have become somewhat isolated by their circumstances, either as a carer, or through their own illness or mobility problems, I found that many charities involved provide drop in cafes, where they can call in any time for a chat, a cup of tea, a sympathetic ear with others in the same boat.

Well, here is the Buzz drop-in cafe!!! :)

Oops! So eager to open :laugh: it appeared on the forum before I'd even finished.

Unfortunately, the limitations are that only with imagination can we share a cuppa, :( but we can share everything else. You don't have to be Einstein, or big political debaters, just talk about whatever and you will get a response.

C'mon, let's give loneliness a kick in the backside :)

Hi I'm a carer for my husband who was diagnosed with M.S. over 20 years ago ... It's a struggle sometimes, would be lying if I said otherwise... so I will be happy to pop in now and again for a chat and a moan. Thank you xxxxx :) :cheer:

Hey Rosie, thanks for going to so much trouble :) we're bound to get a hordes now, with the tea and coffee brewing and music playing (thanks Ju and Mykle) we're open for business!

Welcome Jennilin, we're happy to chat and listen to your moans, a good moan can do wonders sometimes! :laugh:

I'm not a carer. But I do enjoy a good chin wag. If that's ok. Lorna.
