I am a caregiver for my husband who has Parkinsonís
disease. He has other physical problems and is in a
wheelchair. How do you deal with yourself, your emotions,
making the shift from being a couple that was very active,
in a very good relationship, with good conversation? How do
I make the emotional shift from some of my dreams, some of
our dreams, to the daily routine of taking care, doing,
driving, becoming more and more responsible for his care.
Some days are so quiet, isolated. I donít know quite how to
handle how much our life has changed because of the illness.
Some days, I just feel very tired and overwhelmed.
