Tell Us: What’s Today’s Caregiving Stress (Day 5)?

Denise
rock-902662_640As you may know, I’ve been collecting data about your caregiving stress, the overlooked epidemic in our communities. During a recent webinar, The Family Caregiver’s Stress, I shared the current results of our ongoing survey and share thoughts about what’s needed to minimize the stress.

We know that caregiving stress can be ongoing. I also believe that caregiver stress is constantly changing, that what stresses you on Monday is replaced by a different stressful situation on Tuesday. To show the constant and changing face of caregiving stress, I’d love for you to tell us about each day’s caregiving stress over a period of five days. Your stories about your day’s caregiving stress will make our data about your caregiving stress that much more compelling.

In our comments section, below, tell us about the stress you’re feeling today.

Today's stress is me worrying about my kids. My mother in law had a major stroke yesterday, she is unresponsive and is just being kept comfortable. She is DNR so no heroics. My youngest son went today to see his Grandma probably for the last time. My oldest wants nothing to do with Goodbyes! I tried to talk to him about it and he put his hand up to me, \"I don't want to talk about it\". I just worry about my kids and them having to say Goodbye.
