I am a 46 year old woman who was a caretaker for about 10 years. I'm a music librarian and I have a job that I love and an entire life that I built while being a caretaker, but my whole identity and everything I did in my life revolved around taking care of my older sister and so now....learning to live without that responsibility is painful.

My older sister had been in several car accidents and she was physically disabled because of them...and so I took care of her for several years and spent all my time away from my day job taking care of her needs.
