Brenda from Indiana

I have been a caregiver since 2003 my husband became very ill where I took a early retirement to take care of him along with our adopted son that is deaf and has autism. I take my husband and son back and forth to the hospital. My husband had a liver transplant and lots of other health problems. Sometime I get so tired but I know I have to be the caregiver to make sure they get what is needed. I am in good health but it is not easy been a caregiver. I have not been on a vacation since 2010. My husband is in and out of the hospital with other health problems. God thank you and bless all caregivers.
