A Caregiving Comfort: Company

Denise
You can be surrounded by a company of family members and friends and still be lonely.

The loneliness can come from an experience, like caregiving, which puts you out of balance with others.

You may be out of sync because they just can't understand your life of caregiving. And, quite frankly, you can't quite understand their lives which seem, well, kinda shallow.

You may be out of whack because of the information you hold. You know. You know about your caree's vulnerabilities and challenges. You know about living while death slowly marches closer. You know about the true suffering that can happen to your caree and to you. You know what happens after others turn their lights off and yours stay on. You know what they just can't know.

Because of what you experience and what you know, you may feel separated and disconnected while you carry the secrets of caregiving.

Maybe certain company can't understand. You will find a group that will, though. They will understand what it's like. They will relate to what you know.

You're not the only one. With us, you're in good company. Your secrets are welcome with us.
