Caregiving can be one of your life’s most rewarding experiences….it can also be a dark, lonely and often frustrating challenge.  No one is a natural born Mother Teresa or Florence Nightingale.  I think we learn the most from those who have walked the path before us, so with that in mind, I share my own caregiver confessions with the hopes they might offer something useful.

I’m Consumed by Guilt

I Don’t Feel Appreciated

I’m Sleeping Poorly

I’m In Over My Head

I’m Losing My Temper

My Family is Falling Apart

I’m Not Eating Right

I Feel Socially Isolated

I Feel Resentful

I Need Help

I’m Grieving Before Death

I’ve Lost My Sense of Purpose
