Hello Caregiver. 
Before I went on line with counselling because of family illness, I worked for a Christian non-profit. While there I was asked to give a talk to the Parkinson's Association about caregiver stress. As my clients tell me, "At church, they always ask how my husband is doing, They never ask how I am doing". If you think I can help, please contact me. 

All the best,

Hello
During this rough time faith seems hard to hold onto when you feel like you can't do or go any more and you wonder how much more you can take. I'm here to help and very glad you reached out for some help. I'm also a caregiver and understand the feeling of burn out. I'd love to help.

Hi Unhappycamper,
     I appreciate you being open and honest regarding your struggles with being a solo caregiver. That can be
tough as I have been through this myself being a caregiver to a family member of mine. I want to encourage
you to look carefully through our therapist to determine which one is a good match for you. Please be aware
that sometimes we can break out mentally as a result of increasing stressors in our lives.  From experience,
dealing with these issues now are more significant than you know- as they only fester in other areas of our
lives as they are left unresolved.  If you need to talk to someone, I am available to help you work through
your problems. Thanks for sharing!
