Ever wonder why your personal physician, your friends who aren’t caregivers or others just don’t get what you’re going through?  It’s because we all live with different paradigms – patterns and ways of thinking.  Not many physicians have ever been caregivers, they can diagnose a condition but not really help you when it comes to day to day decisions.  Friends who haven’t been caregivers have absolutely no idea what you’re experiencing.  If you’ve lost a parent no one but another person in the same situation understands and at that they can only share their experience, they can’t understand what you’re going through.  The challenge of paradigms in caregiving is that we all should try to be more sensitive to the feelings of others especially if we have no experience with the day to day life of our friend, the caregiver.
