The second teleconference in the series took place on August 13.
Providing emotional support and physical care to someone with MS is
often deeply satisfying, but it is sometimes distressing, and now and
then simply overwhelming. The strain of balancing employment,
child-rearing, increased responsibilities in the home and the on-going
care of a loved one can lead to feelings of martyrdom, anger, and guilt.
This teleconference focused on what it means to be a caregiver;
emotional, physical, mental and spiritual needs; and overall how to take
care of oneself while providing care to someone else.
