Thank you! For writing and posting this.
I would love for this to be a code of conduct, when dealing with caregivers.
Worldwide!
As care giver, of two adults (3 people for 15 years unitl 6 years ago) people have no clue what the life of caregiver,is likes.Until they walk in that life 24/7.
As my first time on here, this was the perfect first reading for me.
I was so pleased to read, that,I am not the only one who see red, when those kind of comments are said.
Just want to add, one more,that, I get told alot.'We all have crosses , to bear'.Yes, that is true, however I wish, my crosses would stop piling up or lighten up or have helpers to help carry them, for wile .Like Simon, carried,Jesus's cross, on the road to Calvary.
Thank you !

Hello @curlysunflowers Nice to e-meet you here and welcome to Connect!

I thank you for your kind words! I got a nice chuckle and nodded my head when I read your addition! Yes, yes, YES!

All too often, since caregiving can be so incredibly isolating, we need someone to, nonjudgmentally, simply know what we are going through!

I admire your dedication and your obvious hard work in you caregiving role!

Know I send you peace, strength, and courage every day!

Peace!
