Too me a young carer means putting your time towards somebody else rather than yourself, I often think “how would this help somebody else?”  My main caring responsibilities are looking after my brother as my Mum Struggles to do it by herself and My dad works night shifts so he is sleeping during the day which means I help my brother with homework and my Mum with the cooking.

 

My #MeTime is to go on my computer, watch TV or read I am really into horror books I enjoy these things as they make forget my caring responsibilities.

 

On a typical school day I would normally help my Mum with the lunches and then I would help my brother tidy his room as there will be clothes everywhere. I often have friends that go to town on the weekend and meet up and because of my caring responsibilities I can’t do that and others things your average person would do.
