I DIDN'T EXPECT THANKS FOR LOOKING AFTER MUM AND DAD...BUT I'M NOT BORING


Caroline's story is so sad - but will be very close to home to many people. She's the one in the family who does everything and she's the one who is forgotten - while she is still very much alive! Caroline feels the rest of the family despise her and view her as boring Aunty Caroline who is no fun - because she doesn't have the chance. But they still expect her to do everything.

In many families there is one person who takes up the 'burden' of care. But is it always toxic?
