How has caregiving changed your life in terms of perceptions, plans, daily tasks, etc?
I was thinking the other day how much my outlook has changed since taking care of my father.
I'm not comfortable watching movies such as Titanic because one of my reactions is how anyone who needs a wheelchair or walker could get off a sinking ship.
I take my cell phone outside when I mow the lawn in case something should happen and my father needs help.
As winter approaches I add several blankets to the car and double check the cold weather emergency gear in case anything happens to the car and we end up in an accident or stranded w/o any heat.
Anyone else find that their lives and outlooks have changed in similar ways? How have you addressed, or tried to address, these different perceptions of what often are everyday risks?
