Are you ready to show your commitment?
These 10 years have been wonderful. Why I am telling all these? well as a caregiver sometimes things can be frustrating but I always look back and know that many of the things that frustrates me now are the result of the brain injury. If I need to repeat the same thing 5 times because my husband forgot he already asked me or if as the result of impulsivity he does something I did not think was right, those are the moments I have to remind myself that I am wearing the shoes of a caregiver. Sometimes I meet spouses that say, "I was not expecting this and I did not ask for this", well I am sure your loved one did not expect a BI either and if for us is frustrating at times, for them is even worst. One thing that I tell caregivers is, "please do not give up, look for ways to reach happiness". I am talking to a general audience and I understand each case is different. I am just sharing from my perspective under my circumstances and I hope it will help you in your journey of care for your loved one.
One thing that I will always emphasized, love and care but never forget to take care of yourself.
