While caregiving, I find the emotion of anger coming to the forefront as I respond to the actions and words of others.
The pressures of caregiving and the realities of long-term illness have brought out big emotions for me to deal with, including anger.
In the past, anger was not a go-to emotion in my response to circumstances.
Today, the actions and words of others around me bring me quickly to anger.
I have had to learn how to deal with anger so it does not interfere with my caregiving, but also so it does not damage my spirit and resilience.
