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.
