This is the subject everyone avoids discussing, except maybe in support groups. You love your spouse but caring for them has become a burden. You’re depressed, exhausted and feel like you’re living someone else’s life. How did it ever get to be like this? It all started when you married and took the vows “until death do us part”. There’s never a way for us to know how our lives will turn out or if we will bear the responsibility of caring for a sick spouse. It seems the older generations are better at caregiving dutifully than the younger generations but there are always exceptions. Are you a caregiver for your spouse, how do you cope with the day to day struggles?
