Details: The prospect of having to care for an ill loved one takes most of us by surprise. Once a diagnosis or treatment schedule has been determined, a caregiver must learn how to multi-task in very creative ways. Usually this is learned by trial and error. Until now. I Need to Scream! Would Anyone Even Hear Me? is a handbook for the caregiver. Once a loved one needs a health advocate, a caregiver is born and then quickly baptized by fire. This book will help douse that inferno. It includes chapters on how to select a hospital and doctor, along with sections on medications, family matters and most importantly, how to take care of his or her self in the process. This is not a scientific project. It is a personal account written by a caregiver. It contains suggestions on how to make the transition from normal life to a new life as painless as possible. I Need to Scream! Would Anyone Even Hear Me? attempts to remove the guilt and negativity that can become part of a caregiver's life. It also includes blank pages at the end of each chapter so that the caregiver is able to jot down notes, questions or reflections. This is a book that is long overdue. Caregivers are part of a strong and silent group. They need a voice. Few people realize the traumatic role of the caregiver, unless one has had experience like the author of this book. We do not know when a serious illness or accident will befall a loved one. It is for that reason that this book should be in every library, home and hospital. I Need to Scream! Would Anyone Even Hear Me? is unlike most publications that include this subject. This book is primarily for caregivers and the people who love them.
