I already have a couple of groups,
one is a weight loss support group called Get skinny with skinnyliz
and the other one is 30 minutes for 30 days ...... which is to motivate each other to do 30 minutes of exercise every day for 30 days!
Both of these groups are closed, which means that you have to be a member to see what is posted in the group. You can however see who the members are! Oh and feel free to come and join us if you are looking for support in a weight loss journey or need motivated to exercise!
My new group is secret.... why you may ask.... well the group is for other live-in carers like myself.
We need to be able to vent, this is not going to be a positive group, it is meant for moaning!!!
You know that if your partner was to complain constantly while they were away at work it would drive you daft! I have been lucky in having a very understanding partner and also a friend who does the same work as me, I have always been able to "phone a friend" !! But not everyone has that support.
The work we do can be very stressful, mentally exhausting and occasionally physically tiring. We go to someone else's house and live with them for usually 2 weeks at a time. Very often the 'clients' don't want you there, but.... they need you there!
So you can imagine being in a stranger's house for a couple of weeks and they don't want you there!
Sometimes you are treated as a skivvy and talked down to...... this isn't nice either!
Now you are saying... why do you do it?
We all need to work........ and sometimes it is a very satisfying job, remember we are basically caring people that want to help others!
Therefore this secret group is so we can bounce off each other and lend an ear to another carer whom we can totally empathise with.
If you were to start a secret group on Facebook what would it be for?
