How do you deal with the guilt?

By | October 21st, 2020

During the later stages of me caring for my wife, I was hopeless and helpless. After a particularly bad episode, I realized that I needed to get outside help because I was no longer equipped to take care of her. As I dropped her off in the care home, I had the sudden urge to take her away, to keep her all to myself. When I had made it back home – I broke down and cried. You have to realize that there is a point in where you have done all that you could have possible done and critical decisions like these have to be made. You have to be honest with your self, and for support I had to lean back on my family, my community, my friends.
