Caregiver hints

A caregiver often become the nucleus for support for a person living with schizophrenia especially during the most difficult times that are caused by the symptoms of the disease… You not only give your loved one vital feedback, but you encourage, motivate, and act as the touchstone to reality for your loved one, offering them a glimpse of a calmer, more stable world. However, one of the most important things a caregiver must recognize about their role is that they can’t do it alone.

This can’t be emphasized enough. It was odd that I found this during a bipolar search. It’s odd to me just how much cross referencing between Sz and Bipolar there is. It’s sort of making me see my baby brother in a whole new light.
