TEARS/PAIN

Some days are filled with tears.  I have difficulty keeping my cool when Jack is in lots of pain.  I do what I can but often there is nothing that I as a caregiver can do to help.  I don't believe even a doctor or nurse could help.  The pain is just there!  I try to not let him see the tears, it makes him realize the hope factor is so personal.

It is so hard to be upbeat and to be the primary caregiver...

Harder I think than being the sick one, since I have now been both.  One resigns themself to their fate but caregivers want to make it better.
