Sarah from Pennsylvania

I am the sole care giver to my partner she has had 90 surgeries this year alone. She suffers from lupus amongst many other ailment. I love her with all my heart and would not trade my caregiver position for anything. When you truly love someone this isn’t a job it’s a way of life. It isn’t always easy, I’m working 50 plus hours a week plus keeping up with chores, shopping and her daily care is sometimes overwhelming. I keep my head up thank you for letting me share my story. Im hoping that this helps others to not give up.
