I had no support in caring for my daughter through GERD, then a corneal ulcer, then her transplant, then 5+ years of trigeminal and occipital neuralgia. She died of a medical mistake one day after moving out of my house. My mother then moved to be closer to me, bringing her dementia with her. Caregiving stretched my financial resources to breaking and my emotional health to the point of suicidal depression. My daughter's medication-induced seizures led to a specific panic disorder. There must be a better way.

I’m signing because I AM the sandwich kid and so disappointed with the care my parents receive from the medical industry. It’s extremely frustrating to not get answers only more pills. More pills means more money spent! That being said, I’m so thankful I’m there for Mom and Dad! It’s exhausting but I wouldn’t have it any other way! No one can give to them what I can!

I have a daughter with Autism. I know the stress of 24/7 care. You do it out of love and commitment but it is stressful.

I'm signing because caregiver stress is real and pervasive, and it's about time the US starting tracking this epidemic.
