|"To feel isolated is part of the human experience. But when we obey the feelings of hesitation and separation more powerfully than those of love, we start to experience numbness and depression." Mark Nepo|
As caregivers we are vulnerable to feeling isolated. We are afraid to leave the care receiver home alone. There are often obstacles to having someone come in to give us respite. It is difficult to take the loved one with us. All of these can lead to isolation. It is so important that we not become too isolated. We need the support and compassion of others who understand what we are dealing with. Who can you look to for love and support?
