What's your golden nugget piece of advice?
There are a lot of things the me from today wishes I could have told the me from 10 years ago. But if I could only tell myself one thing, it would be to tell myself that health events change people's personalities, not just their physical self. And that although those changes can be heartbreaking, new personalities can emerge after one of these events and you can create new memories with and generate new love and affection for that new person. It is hard, and you will always miss the person who you care for used to be, but that doesn't mean there won't be a new person to appreciate.
What one thing would you tell your prior self to help guide you through the caregiving process, whether practical or otherwise?
Happy Christmas and New Year's to All! May your cargiving be as easy as possible...
