If It’s So Hard, Why Did I Do It?

Earlier this week I had the privilege of sharing some of my caregiver experiences with Dave Nassaney on his blogtalk radio program. Dave is known as the caregivers caregiver. He knows, as I do, how hard being a caregiver can be. One of the many questions he asked me is, “If it’s so hard, why do it?”

I know each of you have your own answer to that question and I’d love if you would share your thoughts in the comment section of this post. We may never meet but we are connected in a very special way and I look forward to hearing from you whenever you choose to reach out to me.

Perhaps some of your family members will better understand how they can help you if they listen to this interview. Please share the link as you see fit. Including with Dr. Phil to encourage him to support caregivers via the Dr. Phil Foundation to create grants to help caregivers most in need of help. Yes, I’m still pinging on him to do better.

Here again is the link to the interview with Dave Nassaney on blogtalk radio.

    I’m a caregiver for my husband. I do it because I love him. And because I made a vow “in sickness and health”.

    I did it because I took a vow 40+ years earlier to care for and love him “in sickness and in health … as long as we both shall live.” Where I came from, and when I grew up, that vow meant something. Yes, it was hard, and I sure didn’t choose it, but I knew that, had it been me who had gotten sick, he would have taken care of me.
