To the carers: The parents, the partners, the sisters, the brothers, the grandparents, the aunties, the uncles, the friends.

I know you feel so helpless sometimes. Like there’s nothing you can do.

But you’re doing everything you can. Please believe me when I say this. Without you, we wouldn’t be where we are today in our recoveries.

You can’t take away our illness or our pain.

But you make us feel loved, cared for, and like everything is going to be OK again one day.

You make us cups of tea, hug us, comfort us, make us laugh, cook us meals, message us and drive us to countless appointments.

This may feel like nothing to you, but it’s everything to us.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you to all the carers out there. We love you so much.
