“I’d recommend a book for you to read …but you’re the guy to write it!”
That’s the message I heard from a therapist once during a difficult stretch in my journey as a caregiver. Pondering those comments for some time, I set out to write a book to caregivers —and to my 22-year-old self! I knew it couldn’t be filled with the same platitudes given by so many. “Take care of yourself!” “Get Some Rest.” “Make sure you see to your needs.” Blah, blah, blah.
Serving as a caregiver for as long as I have has provides ample opportunity to hear all the platitudes.
What I set out to do, was speak to the train wreck in the caregiver’s heart and provide the vocabulary of what help looks like to a caregiver. I knew if the caregiver’s heart could settle down and heal, then the finances, profession, marriage, relationships, and health stood a fighting chance of improving as well. – Peter Rosenberger
