What a #ChronicallyAwesome  patient has learned about her caregiver by becoming a caregiver.
I thought I understood caregiving based on what I thought I wanted in a caregiver. Now I am a caregiver, learning every day. I have a new attitude.

Interesting. Recently, maybe 3 or 4 weeks ago, I gave up. Social media became so frustrating to me that I gave up expecting anything from it. I had expectations and hopes that friends there were, well I don't know. Obviously, I don't know. If I knew I would not have become so frustrated. So, I gave up. I post now and again, fits and starts. Shrug... it ain't what it used to be and I am finding that the phone is face down more often, in the purse quite a bit.
