But, sometimes all of the blogs and guides in the world might not be of much help to a caregiver who feels depressed. It may take a patient to provide the best medicine. Here’s the start of “An Open Letter to My Caregivers” that I discovered on the Life with an Illness blog, written by Mackenzie:
“Having a chronic illness, a lot of people have vanished in my life, but you have never left my side. You have seen me through the good times and you haven’t left my side through the dark times.”
Whether you’re a caregiver or a patient, it’s worth your while to go to Mackenzie’s blog and read the whole letter. Then, ask yourself when the last time was that you thanked the person, or people, who help you make it through your day.
