Just Different

For some people, there are only a few reasons why they will be going to the hospital–

  • Birth of a child
  • To visit someone who is sick or had surgery 
  • Trip to the ER

And that’s ok. We all are faced with different challenges that we must figure out.

Being a caregiver is just different.

Not everyone will be able to relate to you. Some of your friends may take a backseat or disappear.

Life is constantly changing and people come and go. I decided long ago if my parents needed me, I would answer the call. 

It’s been rewarding, challenging, difficult, easy, hard, empowering and all those other words that describe this experience. 

Being a caregiver is just different.

Number one advice: pack your patience.
