“Mayhem” (5-1-17) TESTIMONY
I wish that the solution to becoming a better caregiver were already worked out.
I struggle with forgiveness. Everyone reacts differently to stress. Illness left me a scattered and helpless man. It broke apart my family. And it’s all good. We came back together stronger than ever!
Nobody should gain acceptance the way that we had to do it. There’s no denial that cancer ate at Linda and that Alice got sent to the Big House. I gave up – but we all changed.
There are two facets in the problem with giving advice to male caregivers: collection and distribution. On this blog I tried very hard to record content and preserve context which gives correct examples of how difficult it is to become a better caregiver. Quite possibly only I will relate to much of it. I entertained the notion that everyone who made their way here could find something to glean which would make better caregivers. But that’s not right – you have to do it yourself. Don’t take my word for it – compose your own!
Develop a genuine concern to become a better caregiver. Find hope – it is a daily journey. And embrace changes. If you wish to Browse the Menu and follow the links, seeking meaningful resources – then do so – that will be fine. But when you are able, create road maps and outline the ways for others to recover from this difficult state in life.
Please try to understand this: Caregiving is for everyone.
