being a caregiver for 11 months and 21 days was the hardest thing I ever did- emotionally and physically. I still have health issues, anxiety and hyper tension from that time in my life.
My heart is with all the caregivers and family members near and far who with every ounce of care wish we could erase the cancer from our loved ones bodies.
We don't sleep, we fail to take care of ourselves, we neglect our own families and jobs and responsibilities in order to care for our loved one with cancer.
Cheers to us all for having been thru it and made it out the other side~
Prayers to you all going thru it now~ may your outcomes be celebrated by your loved ones survivorship.
Yes, please use this forum to ask advice, vent and lean. Our shoulders and ears are here for you.
On a side note: caregivers are so special to me that I am working on some caregiving tools and user modules to help lung cancer caregivers.
And don't forget our caregivers contest. We want to honor you. You can enter by clicking here. http://events.lungevity.org/site/PageNa ... _Caregiver
