Caringlizi, one of our members, wrote yesterday:
Dealing with my husband’s progressing brain tumor is bad enough, but I just don’t know what to do with his family. I feel so invisible at times, bullied at others. Not sure if I want to hide in the closet or yell.
Can anybody relate?
Sometimes, managing the family (yours, your caree’s) can seem like managing a regiment of complicated medications. Some family members you can take in the morning, others cause you to take too much candy after an interaction. And, if you mix up the regiment, you get too many complications—misunderstandings, hurt feelings, awful arguments. And, of course, you also get the upset stomach.
So, what’s it like for you with family? Please share your experiences in our comments section, below. And, one of our commenters will win an autographed copy of my book, Good Morning! Sunny Reflections to Start Your Day.
Thanks so much for sharing!
