Bother

handsIt all feels like a bother.

So, how can you possibly bother another with your problems?

In caregiving, you can feel perpetually bothered. Bothered by pesky bill collectors, a forgetful caree, a demanding responsibility.

You know what it’s like to be bothered. So you don’t want to bother.

Except… You have too much stirring around in your soul to not bother. You want to share what you just saw or what the doctor just said or what your caree just did.

You can bother us. Tell us what just happened, or what you just thought, or what you just suppressed.

For us, it’s no bother.

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.
