1. My husband has type 2 diabetes and all the complications that ensues from this horrid disease. Right now we are trying to keep his kidneys functioning well enough to avoid dialysis – but that looks more and more to be the likely outcome in the near future. I am tired – so tired. He has not been able to work for many years, so I am also the chief financial provider. I love my husband and would do all this all over again in a heartbeat, but yes, I do have compassion fatigue – I just have been running on empty for many years now. Thank you for sharing this – too often caregivers are overwhelmed and without the support desperately needed. It is so important to take care of yourself through it all….

    1. Dear Carol,
      Please consider this note to be a virtual hug. You know it is so important to take care of yourself – and we both know how difficult that can be. When I only had a moment, I’d take three deep breaths, breathing in love and compassion. Perhaps this little idea will give you a moment of peace. Thank you for all you do.

    2. Carol, Here you are again! We not only have the same name, but similar expeiences. I knew there was a reason I found your blog. Now I have discovered another person who understands the importance of recovery for the caregiver. God bless you and God bless Gale Lyman!

      1. Wow! It’s amazing how many people I have connected with on WordPress that have similar paths to mine. Some call it kismet – I call it mystical energies at work in the universe. God bless you too!
