I don’t get to see my family and friends as often as i would like

Why don’t you try? : How to see friends and family more

It’s easy to become isolated when caring around the clock, especially when you feel your relationships with family members or friends might be suffering. Unfortunately this feeling of being out of touch can come at a time when you need the support of others most.
Try asking for a small amount of help & with shopping or staying with the person you look after for a short time to allow you to pop out.
By telling them what a difference it has made, it might result in them offering to help out again.
It often feels easier to ask for help when you have a physical ailment but emotional pain is just as relevant and the stress it can cause can lead to physical problems if you don’t deal with it.
