I just want to note that I agree that it is important to share your experiences. First because there is no class and you end up being both the ambassador and the teacher for your situation. Second, because there is no education into the world of caregiving and disabilities unless it is shared. – Roaring Mouse
You poor thing! You are working to hard. I’d offer to help but I have to get XYZ done!
What do you mean that’s not done yet? You are just not managing your time well!
–You should have decided not to have children knowing that your spouse was going to be in accident. Now look you can’t juggle both of them. Shame on you for…[Read more]
Prayers have been sent, and hugs are coming to you now. I went through that once with Spike too! But his was a reaction to beta-blockers. Your husband is blessed to have such strong love with him through this and you have an amazing husband who strength to survive is because of yours. If you ever want to talk…you know how to find…[Read more]
Dear Shirley, Welcome to the site! I have been with it for about 4 or 5 years now and even though my spouse has passed on, I come here because I have met the best people in life that I ever could. You’ll find the support and encouragement here amazing!
To follow up on your note…yes it’s frustrating when you have fellow family members…[Read more]
You are in a really tough spot. But I agree with Denise and Pegi. Maybe find within your heart the time to have a self discussion and reason out what you are feeling. It does sound like thought that your friend is having a hard time facing the future.
When I went through that, I was told to not tell my daughter anything or even let…[Read more]
I just saw your post! I might be able to accomplish this for you! I will catch you offline!
@adrianna: Welcome to Caregiving.com! Of all of the sites I have ever seen on the net…this site I call home because it’s not about telling you how to do things….it’s about support, cheerleading and offering suggestions on how you might do things. Through most of my journey…they have never left my side and still continue to do so to this…[Read more]
This popped up on my radar again. Thanks @Trish for doing this.
As I looked at Denise’s comments, yours and others…and as I recalled the caregiving awards I received…I don’t see how you can be a successful caregiver if you put your life on hold. The awards I received were because I continued to live in the community while simultaneously…[Read more]

Denise…This is an awesome idea and should be more readily available. Lord knows I could have used the extra information at that time. What I didn’t expect was to acquire as many unique stories after his passing that I did in his life. I still want to write my book and am hoping over the summer to do it.
Your book (at least from the…[Read more]
This is a fantastic idea. If I do speak at a Gerontology Conference next month…I’d like to take your idea with me…In fact…I’m going to add it into my presentation for the statewide I’m doing next week. The only thing I might question…is that on the card…it shows no relationship outright to your mom. If you get inexperienced staff they…[Read more]
Jane, I agree with you and wouldn’t change one word of what you wrote. However, I will now add to my presentation that once people create their medical binders to add in their EP docs into that as a safe place […]
I got your email this morning while I was in a phone meeting taking notes. I can’t begin to imagine the emotion that rages through you right now.
You were the person that taught me what a caregiver […]
