Our February meeting is about our caregivers.  So, please bring along you spouse, partner, friend, children, etc.  We hope to accomplish two goals:

  • Thank our caregivers.
  • Give our caregivers a place to ask questions and see that we all experience fatigue, brain fog, pain, etc.

We will have a panel of caregivers which will include Jamie Liptan (Dr. Liptan’s husband), Bob Staples (Tamara’s husband) and possibly a third person.

Please bring your questions and have your caregiver’s bring their questions.

Tami Stackelhouse will also do a short demonstration of “The Spoon Theory,” which should help those in attendance better understand what it is like to live with chronic illness, fatigue and pain.
