When I was about to get my wisdom teeth removed, I mentioned my impending dental procedure to a few people. Each person had their own tale to tell—mostly horror stories, of course—and I remember thinking that I had never heard so many different dental chair tales before. Then I realized that it was because I had never had the experience, the topic had been so off my radar.
I have noticed the same thing about being a caregiver for your parents: Mention it even in passing and nearly every person you speak with has a personal tale to tell. Either they’ve been a caregiver, are a caregiver or see caregiving in their not-so-distant future. That’s why it’s so important to have a caregiving community and not to feel so isolated and alone.
The minute you tell your story, you’ll be surprised at how many others can offer valuable insight, support and commiseration.
