Many people, after completing their caregiving journey with a dastardly disease, prefer to walk away and leave it behind. I am still invigorated when I can speak to others coming behind me on the path. I know what they are really saying when they ask a bland question. I know when I see their eyes fill with tears what they are anxious about. And if I can see them laugh at one of our funny experiences, I think maybe I have demonstrated for them the importance of a few minutes of carefree laughter. Maybe I have lightened their load just a bit...........as others did for me.
I frequently speak to various caregiver groups, and would love to see as many people as possible. Come share your stories with me and the rest of the group.
Helping us has been a comfort and a blessing for us!...
