Voices From The Wilderness
So many of us from around the world calling out for help. I am just amazed. All the situations similar or different, all with one thing in common, family caregivers going under. There should be a national conference or global summit that we can all attend.
I can’t imagine the hundreds of thousands of people that would show up. Of course none of us could afford it, have the time, nor could we find someone to watch our parent while we were gone! Whoever could imagine that this entire generation would inherit this issue. We were blindsided.
It was a slow, evolving trap that snared one family member and there is no escape unless we chew off our leg. Meanwhile the siblings we grew up with, skated. The most annoying part of it is their total lack of understanding and compassion for our predicament.
They don't know and they don't want to know. And they will never know and isn't that nice for them. I am already practicing how to be gracious at the funeral.
