How Not to Say the Wrong Thing
And while THIS PIECE is about grieving, try reading and substituting the word griever for caregiver. Caregivers, it seems to me, are grieving incrementally. Caregiving involves weeks/months/years of various traumas large and small, interrupted sleep, medication management, household and financial duties, sacrifices, and life or death decisions--all of which create a mountain of a million griefs.
For some reason I'm surrounded by people who say and do (even more important) the right things. You know who you are.
I present to you an ocean of gratitude.
