Chronic pain can make us feel guilty. We can feel like a burden to those who take care of us when we’re in pain, and this can lead to a cycle of shame and doubt. (Hint: you’re not a burden.) You don’t need to be ashamed of your pain and you don’t need to feel guilty — it’s not your fault. But what can you do to make sure your caretakers are supported?

 

Supporting Your Caretaker

Have a written plan in place

Include your caretaker in your preventative care

Encourage your caretaker to take care of themselves

Write your caretaker a letter

Let your caretaker know they’re not alone

You and your caretaker can have a special, rewarding relationship and guilt doesn’t need to be a part of it. Make sure you’re both taking care of your emotional health so you can be there for each other in equal measure.
