And I’m starting… Although I think that everyone and their brother has a blog, I’m now doing one too. It’s time though since very little is out there for SCI caregivers especially those like me – caregivers of their spouses. I’m in the process of putting together a website for Spinal Cord Injury caregivers but that’s taking much longer than I thought. Web creation is a bit beyond me so I’m doing what I can and starting here. This way I can get information out there quicker! Always a good thing for those in my situation.
My hopes for this blog…
1. That others in my situation will find comfort knowing they are not alone.
2. To share information that’s helpful to me as a caregiver so others can find easier ways to live and deal.
3. To help someone.
The first one and last one are the main reasons for my doing this… I’m finally at a place where I can help others. It’s taken me four long years to get here and now that I’m here, I so desperately want others to know they aren’t going through this alone. For years, I thought I was alone in my journey and it was heartbreaking. And then I found my soul sister and realized that there were others going through the same daily battle. Finding her gave me comfort and helped me heal. I’d love to be able to be that person for someone else now even if it’s just one other person.
I hope to post as much as possible but for those in my situation, you know how difficult it can be to find alone time… So I hope to do my best and make this a worthwhile adventure.
Feel free to email me with any questions or comments or concerns and I’ll do my best to help!!
