    Hi, I’m a young carer and it can be a real struggle. I have an older sister with advanced microphaley which means she has holes in her extremly small brain. She has Proufound Autism, Epilepsy, Cerebal palsy, and a thousand other undiagnosed conditions under the term “Proufond special needs”.it can be diffucult caring for someone with the hormones of a 15 year old but the stubborn, immature, selfish, mind of a 2 year old. The trouble is, I have Moderate Aspergers, OCD, epilepsy, Dyslexia, SOD and ADHD, despite being intumectully fine,,so can have real difficultys myself. Is anyone else a young carer?

    hi i am also a yong carer. my little sister has autism and is 6 but her mental age is about 2 or 3. she has autism, and a speech disorder so she can't really pronounce some letters or words. because i am related to her, i have anxiety and big mood swings (not just because of my age) and probably some traits of autism. i have often thought about suicide and have thought about doing it. but don't give up no matter what your situation is!
