Anger

I get so angry with my husband.  It’s like he is totally unaware of my life and what I have to take care of for myself, not to mention caring for him.  I was so nice for the first few months after the stroke but now 6 months later, all I am is angry all the time.  I am making an appointment to see a counselor and waiting for a call back.  Just wanted to know if anyone else feels this way?See More

Writing poetic verse helped me cope and allowed me to connect with other caregivers.  As caregivers, we are not alone.

Check out these two books on Amazon.com.   They make great gifts for other caregivers as well.

June

Hello.

My name is June and I am 73 and retired. Around the 1st or 2nd week of June, 2018, I received a call from my ex boyfriend and he told me he had had a stroke and was in an assisted living facility and ask me to come visit.

I told him yes, and during the next three weeks I visited him every day or two while I was making my final decision.



His stroke was relatively mild and on the… Continue
