Readers of the Multiple Sclerosis Caregiving blog make comments that can usually be separated into just a few subjects related to caregiving: 1) shock at an MS diagnosis, 2) concern about the future and worry about how difficult caregiving will be, 3) questions about a particular aspect of caregiving, and 4) support for another reader.
I wrote in my initial post, I’m an MS Caregiver, “My goal for this blog is that it become a helpful resource for other MS Caregivers. I hope you can use what I share to improve your own life. And in making the caregiving lifestyle easier for you, I believe it will be easier for you to be more helpful to the one for whom you care.”
That fourth subject, “support for another reader”, is the one that has become a very pleasant surprise. That MS Caregivers spontaneously help each other, share insights and tips, and offer emotional support to each other has become the part of this blog I enjoy the most. Thanks for helping other MS Caregivers!
