"Caregivers often suppress emotions. One day leads to another in a confusing state of numb disorientation. Preoccupied with the continuous caring for someone else, we detach our minds from what we feel in our hearts.
Though strong feelings are a natural part of the caregiving experience, our situations produce feelings that are hard to understand. Why am I depressed? Is it normal to be angry? Why do I feel sad? What is this fear I am feeling?
Naming those emotions is the first step to understanding what we're going through. Putting those feelings - depression, sadness, anger, and fear-into words can make them less intense. Once we understand what we are experiencing, we can find healthy ways to express these emotions".
