A Moment of Anger, a Prompt for Support


A Moment of Anger, a Prompt for Support

100312185318resized_HandsYesterday, @micknew (Michelle) joined me on Your Caregiving Journey for Table Talk. You can listen to our show via the player, below.

Michelle shared her caregiving story, which began last October when her boyfriend, Jahn, had a heart attack at work. After months of hospitalizations and rehab, he returned home in January. Michelle talked about the adjustments they've made, which includes cutting back hours at her teaching job for Michelle.

I asked Michelle what brought her to Caregiving.com. During a moment of anger, when Jahn didn't tell the truth about following treatment plan, she decided she needed support. She joined our site and then jumped into participating in our groups--Three Positives, Caregivers Create and VRide. We are lucky to have her with us; she gives back to us through her sense of humor and compassionate spirit. You'll often see Michelle in our chats, connecting and sharing with our other members.

I'd love to know: What happened that make you realize you needed to support? Please share your stories in our comment section, below.

I realized I needed support when my wife's health issues became increasingly more complex and more then I could handle. I searched the internet for support for caregivers and found Caregiving.com. That was a little over a year ago. I've learned so much and there is so much more to learn.
