I read points in your blog to my husband, my caregiver for the past 8 years. He related to so many of them. I believe the caregiver quite often has the more difficult task...goes through similar life changes due to the illness, deals with various emotions that he/she is often afraid to express because it is not their illness, and is expected to be the strong one all the time.


Thank you for supporting your wife and all of the rest of us and our caregivers!

Michael, thank you for becoming an ISN Blogger with Stop the Rollercoaster! I love your writing style and your perspective as a caregiver is a much-needed addition that will help both caregivers and patients, alike. :you-rock:
