Tell Us: What's Today's Truth?

Denise
In his keynote address at our First Annual National Caregiving Conference, Richard Lui shared that he used to answer questions about his father, who has dementia, with the pat answer, "He's fine." He's changing his address, he said, to give a truthful assessment of his dad is really doing.

Let's do that, too.

In our comments section, share the truth (the good, the bad and everything in between) about today. (And, today is the day you read this.) Be honest about what's happening today, what challenging you're facing and the worries you're fretting over.

I look forward to reading your truth.

I guess my truth is that I have been selected to look after my parents health and finances and that it doesn't matter whether anyone else likes it, or if they lie about me and even turn other people against me. I have to develop a thick skin, like another caregiver told me. I am supposed to be looking after parents, and theirs is the only opinion that matters. We have a huge split in our family that may never heal and it is making a stressful situation even worse. They believe what they want to believe and carry resentment in their heart. I got the thought that it is THEIR burden to carry, not mine. But it is depressing to have this at Christmas and to know that you are hated so severely.
