Caregiver Stress
Caregiver Stress
05/27/2015



Today is my 11th wedding anniversary. It's a second marriage for both of us and we both have grown children and several grandchildren. We had lots of fun dancing and traveling, until shortly after 8 years of marriage, my husband got an auto immune disease and was paralyzed for close to a year. His life and mine are forever changed. We used to go out to dinner for special occasions, but because of digestive problems, we can't do that anymore. So I made a nice dinner with food he could eat and I told him I love being his wife. He gave me a card that made me cry, saying he wouldn't be alive if it wasn't for me. 

I can't leave him for long, but I go to the gym every day, visit my grandchildren once a month, and knit for a charity group. I love this man more than ever.  I try to show appreciation, and remind him how much he has progressed. It helps that he has a good attitude even with this awful disease... 

For better or worse, 

Karen
