Caregivers Need Help, Too

While living with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) isn’t easy, having the support of your loved ones—your spouse, children, friends, or relatives—can make it a little better. But sometimes they need guidance on how to help you.

Talk with your caregivers on a regular basis to discuss how you all are feeling. This will help to solve problems and reduce tension, especially early in your diagnosis. Encourage your loved ones to take breaks from caring for you to focus on themselves. And remember to always ask for help rather than demand it—the word “please” goes a long way.
