What's Your Caregiving Headline?

Denise
New-York-Post-Headless-bo-006Yesterday, on Your Caregiving Journey, @trish and I discussed Love, our latest book in our CareGifters Book Series. June, one of the book's contributors, also joined us to talk about her essay, "Open Wounds, Open Hearts," featured in Love. You can listen to our show via the player, below.

During our show, we discussed how hard it can be to write about what's happening in a caregiving day. June shared that she struggled to write about caring for her husband because the emotions feel so overwhelming. Our Love book's deadline gave her the nudge she needed. She said that the experience of writing--while really painful--became freeing. It released for her.

Our discussion about writing made me think of our members who shared their caregiving stories last week in The New York Times. Could you ever imagine that your caregiving story would make The New York Times? And, yet, what you do during caregiving makes headlines. You overcome, particularly during those days when you think you've lost.

So, I'd love to know: What's your caregiving headline? Your headline could be about today or yesterday or about your experience. Please share yours in our comments section, below.

I love your headline, <a href='http://www.m40.siteground.biz/~caregiv6/members/worriedwife/' rel=\"nofollow\">@worriedwife</a>!

My headline (as it relates to Fr. Orlando) is 'The Perfect Sunset' Being his Caregiver was hard because of his multiple health issues, yet anything that is worthwhile doing is going to be hard...this was more than a worthwhile experience for both of us. His perfect sunset happened because he was given the opportunity to have a choice in his care, in where he wanted to be during his 'home stretch.' Being the conduit to that perfect sunset will always be a great memory for me!
