Care Break Video: To Compare Or Not to Compare

Denise
You try not to. But sometimes you can't help but compare. You compare your life against those who aren't in a caregiving situation. And, then you compare your circumstances to those who are in a caregiving situation.

You can feel cornered by all the comparing.

During today's Care Break discussion, Bruce McIntyre, who cares for his wife, discusses the pit falls when you compare.
