What Happens When The Caregiver Gets Sick?

I’ve been feeling so crappy these last several days, and I know this will continue into next week because this is the way I get sick.

But, I was able to lounge in my chair, nap frequently, read a little bit, and today I knitted for about a half hour.

What can a caregiver do when she gets sick? She doesn’t have the freedom to do what I’v e done, she just has to plod along no matter how miserable she feels. And believe me I’ve been pretty miserable.

You can do something. If you are part of a community that hears things about his neighbors, and you hear about someone who has just become a caregiver, do something about it. Give the gift that lasts forever and costs nothing. Adopt A Caregiver, and tell them your friend Helene sent you. Just send an email and offer to be their friend, to listen without judging and to let them vent.

If you’ve never stood in a new caregivers shoes, read my book, Behind The Mask. My secret journal that I published after they changed my husband’s diagnosis. I poured my thoughts and emotions into that secret journal, and maybeimy story will help others.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene
