Default Impact of caring

This is an excellent article . For me there are added layers which further complicate the situation. The caring fir mum and my uncle when a child and watching the disease and the added complication. Of my own risk and potentially shifting thus burden to some else . It first really offer solutions but clearly explains the profound impact it has on us as after all it's not the movement disorder that is the real problem x

Hi Jaq......Thank-you for posting details of the above article.... which, as you say, is an excellent 'portrayal' of the impact of caring. I am constantly amazed at the caring role I witness in others....far above and beyond anything myself and others I know, are (or have) dealt/dealing with on a daily basis......and still they/and you..find the strength and resources somehow to continue...and offer more of their own time (sound familiar to you!)

I hope that, from somewhere, somehow, you yourself are getting the understanding and emotional support needed to sustain this caring commitment in such difficult circumstances.

Best wishes
Crystal
