I’ve been thinking about the emotional pain we experience during our caregiving experience. For me, I’m struggling with the uncertainty of what’s next as it relates to my parents’ declines. I feel the pain of that uncertainty because I struggle to calm my worries. I also feel the pain of feeling in a holding pattern, waiting for the next challenge or crisis. The waiting hurts, too.
I wonder: What hurts you?
As always, thank you so much for sharing.
