This post was originally published on this site My wife, Jill, who has Huntington’s disease, is doing remarkably well. Caregivers might think they are whining or being inconsiderate if they talk about how hard things are to the person to whom they are giving care. Jill’s perspective makes sense to me as a caregiver and as a guy (because men are typically reluctant to share their feelings), which is why I’m sharing it for all the other caregivers reading this column. Jill is glad that I don’t feel alone as her caregiver because they are there for us. This content is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.
