Anger. Guilt. Anger….cycle
Does anyone else go through a never ending loop of anger/guilt?
Anger at the situation. Guilt for feeling angry for something no one has control over. Anger for the lack of control over the situation. Guilt for feeling angry over the situation consuming your life and the will to live a life that just seems perfunctory. Angry for feeling as if caring for someone you love makes you feel perfunctory. Guilt for feeling anger…and so on and so on?…
I’ve read a few posts from other caregivers and others on other posts. I’m sorry I’m not one of the “supporters” here on the forum. I do so much of that in life…I have nothing left to give here.
I empathize so much with others here. The life of a caregiver no one else but another caregiver can imagine. The physical, mental and emotional strain. The all consuming-ness of every day; one day bleeding into the next. The constant difficult decisions, negotiations and winging it…. Thank you for posting all the personal and sometimes no-so-tidy details….so other caregivers can know that they’re not alone.
