Caregiving is hard work! The support and insights of other caregivers, who have walked the same road, are a huge help.
I have learned so much about – diseases, behaviours, strategies to help me cope.
I called the telephone support line as well. I could talk about things I didn’t want to mention in group and that extra support was invaluable.
I felt alone, depressed, sorry for myself – so many emotions I can’t describe them all. After I started going to the support group, I didn’t feel alone anymore. I felt the closeness that someone cared what I was going through and understood.
The support saved my life and my sanity.
