Guilty Caregiver

I’m always feeling guilty because I don’t know how to be a good caregiver for my father who I have to visit at least 5 times a week.  Please help!

Jackson in Wisconsin, 48

It’s very common for caregivers to feel guilty, but please stop feeling this way starting right now.  Guilt is a wasted emotion.  I find it so unproductive.  Guilt brings up old issues that drag you down.  It deprives you of thinking clearly.  I can’t always help from feeling guilty, but I try my hardest not to indulge in it.  Instead, it’s important to turn a negative emotion into a positive one.  You have enough issues on your plate.  Being as productive as possible needs to be your ultimate goal.
