Tell Us: When Do You Wish for a Pink Slip?

You plow through the days, doing your best to stay positive, strong, smiling.

But, some days, well, you just find yourself wishing for a pink slip. If only you could just walk away from your caregiving role, you think, life would be so much better. And, worse, the wish to walk weighs heavily on your heart. You feel like the worst person in the world. But, every family caregiver, at least once, has hoped to be let go from caregiving.

When is it for you? Take our quick poll (below) and we’ll share the results on Saturday’s Table Talk show. (If you select “Other” please be sure to write in your answer.)

About Denise Brown

I began working with family caregivers in 1990 and launched CareGiving.com in 1996 to help and support them. Through my blog, I share words of comfort and offer coping strategies and tips. I also write opinion pieces about recent research, community programs and media coverage of caregiving issues. I've written several caregiving books, including "The Caregiving Years, Six Stages to a Meaningful Journey," "Take Comfort, Reflections of Hope for Caregivers" and "After Caregiving Ends, A Guide to Beginning Again." You can purchase my books and schedule a coaching call with me in our store.
