The hardest part of being a caregiver is the long term management of running on empty, being sleep deprived and at the same time having to perform critical and potentially life altering cares that keep your loved one alive.
John and I have experienced so much in our crazy relationship; happiness, sadness and heartbreak! But as weird as this sounds, I now have a love/hate relationship with our third wheel (SCI)!
Caregiver Corner Series, Ann and George: Yes, SCI does often rear its ugly head, for some its daily, for others it’s less frequent. But none-the-less, it has given George and our family enriching experiences and new friendships. The fatigue of this injury is EXHAUSTING, but I consider us stronger for keeping on in redefining possible!
Since we began this journey a little more than 2 years ago, we have met so many beautiful, selfless caretakers and I have noticed a significant gap that I hope The Arch Foundation can fill.
