I never thought I would spend over half my life caring for others. I was not prepared for the isolation and host of implications, cognitive dissonance, feelings of frustration and quite frankly, monstrous rage. I lacked coping skills, especially how to effectively ask for help. Now that I myself have become head injured and am facing my own health issues while still trying to cope with care giving onus, I think much of my personal feelings of frustration and to be brutally honest, my lack of empathy for my ill loved ones would have been easier if I had informed myself earlier and been better able to identify with those I care for before I myself joined their ranks, best book on the subject:http://www.amazon.com/The-Body-Silent-Different-Disabled/dp/0393320421
