Asking caregivers about the hard tasks
Saturday, September 21, 2013
Man, tonight was not an easy evening. I do what needs to be done and hubby continually thanks me, calls me 'a good kid,' and in general I am OK with it all. I just want th etasks done so his discussions at that time are not particularly wanted by me. I might seem cold to him. I don't know. It is the best I can do.
I always say back, I love you. But I don't talk much at that time. I honestly can't do two things at once, a complicated task and also make chit chat.
I wonder how other caregivers handle this? You don't need to praise me . I am OK and am not looking for a boost. I am looking for a practical way to handle the real, inner person I am caring for and get a tough job done at the same time.
Thanks all, chris
