: I am a caregiver for my husband, he is now incompetant and physically disabled due to a brain tumor removal. I am looking for anyone who is taking care of a wife or husband 24 hours a day. I have found sites and support groups for the caregiver of a child or parent, sites for the disabled person but none for me. Please if there is anyone in my situation and need to share contact me. Everyone can feel sorry and feel bad for you but no one truly understands.

I am also a wife, who is a caregiver and i
truly understand your situation, but my husband
does great some days, and others, he sleeps a lot,
and he has tongue cancer, with a feeding tube,
so it is stressful, with 3 times a day, i give
him Ensure (2 cans) at a time, and it seems
i can't keep up with him, and i have an ll year
old little girl, and have to take her places,
and we try to eat out a lot, because i hate
to have food around him, he had the tubing put
in Feb. diagnosed in Jan, and this is really
stressful, i know how you feel, write to me
anytime if you like, we at least can talk about
our life, and i read a lot of books, just to
help my attitude. Glad to meet you,
God Bless you,
Joni
