Last night, one of our visitors (Kari) shared a comment on Friday’s How Was Your Day? post:
I’ve been caring for my fiancé for about 8 years since he had a failed back surgery. He now had intractable pain, which is constant severe pain. The hardest part for me is dealing with his anger toward me and the world for not helping him get better, and causing him to get worse. I clean up lots of messes and still can’t keep the place liking amd feeling nice. I get overwhelmed with all the work, just cleaning up after him. I often think that I would trade places with just about anyone. I hope this site can help , I just needed to vent. Is it the average that the sick person gets so angry at the caregiver?
What’s your experience in managing your caree’s handle? Do you feel like you become the target for the anger?
