Coping with Cancer Caregiver PSTD

Coping with Cancer Caregiver PSTD

Coming down from taking care of someone with cancer is like an addict going cold turkey. Every day I took care of Dan, we followed the same unbearable routine; the last weeks were especially traumatic for me. It's been three years since his death, and I think I am...

Your most valuable possession

Your most valuable possession

The release of Disney Pixar’s The Incredibles 2 seemed a perfect time to revisit an important quote by Mrs. Incredible/Helen Parr/Elastigirl from the original film: “Your identity is your most valuable possession. Protect it.” To me, that is one of the most valuable...

Stop telling me to be grateful I’m a caregiver

Stop telling me to be grateful I’m a caregiver

When people find out I take care of my mom, a certain percentage of people tell me how lucky I am that I still have my mom. How I should cherish every moment. Sure, it's hard now, but they'd give anything for just one more day. These people are assholes. Okay, I know...

Picking Up the Pieces After the Person You Have Been Caring for Dies

Picking Up the Pieces After the Person You Have Been Caring for Dies

When you are in the midst of being a caregiver you build your time and your life around managing the caregiver tasks that need to be done. As a caregiver for my dad I know my schedule revolved around visits to the doctor, the hospital, the assisted living facility,...
