I created this graphic to illustrate what all too often happens to primary caregivers as their loved one's disease progresses. As the stresses increase, your social connections drop off, to the point where you are almost completely isolated. With no support system to help you cope, the stresses start to take their toll, both physically and emotionally. Taking steps to maintain connections is vital to your health, and your ability to care for the one you love. Have you experienced this, or are you going through it now? What are you doing to keep yourself healthy?
