Caring for a family member doesn’t look the same from one family or situation to the next. You may feel that all the work you are doing is normal for what a loving daughter, son, or partner would do.

Depression after a scary diagnosis
If the person you care for has a life-threatening illness, you might think it’s only natural for them to feel down.

It can also improve other symptoms, such as pain and insomnia.
