Our topic for this #carechat will be managing family dysfunction and caregiving. These questions will guide our discussion:

Q1. How would you define "dysfunction"?

Q2. How do you think fear fits into dysfunction?

Q3. How does a dysfunctional family situation affect your caregiving situation?

Q4. How do you take care of yourself when you're in a dysfunctional situation?

Q5. How do you make sure you don't tolerate what's truly intolerable?

Q6. When the dysfunction involves your caree, you can feel trapped. What suggestions do you have to cope?

Q7. How do you remain functional in a situation, like caregiving, which can feel like it can get the best of you?
