If you live with paralysis and your sibling plays a caregiving role, what can your sibling do to help you best? What kind of feelings arise from your sibling being your caregiver? What do you wish your sibling knew?

    This is a great question. Thanks for bringing the topic up.

    Communication is one of the most important factors. Both sides have to communicate and listen to each other. I believe that siblings have to be aware of the sibling relationship they have when they act as caregivers. How was your relationship before you became a caregiver? Does that play into how you care for your sibling?
