Support for Caregivers

When a loved one gets sick, really sick, you can find yourself in a “new normal” where your lives revolve around doctors appointments, medical research, preparing different food and intense emotions that you don’t have time to figure out.

  • How do you prioritize what needs to be done?
  • How do you take care of yourself so that you can manage everything?
  • How do you get squabbling family members onto the same page so that you can all focus your energy on healing the one who is sick?

Particularly when you are dealing with an illness that it is difficult to find medical experts for, lives can be thrown into a disarray that seems to have no end in sight.

How can you use this constant uncertainty to return over and over to the present moment, so that there is a process of completion in your lives, whether or not the body heals? Ironically, this helps the body heal.

Finding your way through this quagmire, it is possible to connect to something deeper within yourself to ground yourself and your sick loved one. There is a stability available to you that you might never find if you are not tested.

When you find it, it is possible to become a hotspot of healing. When you find it, the source of healing becomes a deeper intelligence. Deeper than the frightened mind that is currently scrambling for solutions.

“This isn’t at all about ‘revising’ the story you tell yourself about your life experiences. It’s about slipping into the space between the event and the story…. Nothing– no relationship, no phone call, no disaster or piece of good fortune– has meaning inherent to it. It waits for us to talk to ourselves about it.”
