Me? A Caregiver? is a winner of a 2013 Caregiving Friendly Award by Today's Caregiver and a Gold Medal Winner-2013 Living Now Book Awards. Ellen Harris, an independent woman, a passionate artist and a devoted mother vowed never to be a burden to her children. Her youngest daughter, Mary Beth Harris, an independent, free spirit, was finally landing her dream job in Hollywood. It never occurred to her that she would become her mother's caregiver. But when rheumatoid arthritis severely crippled Ellen's hands and feet, mother and daughter came together and now, instead of ordering expensive champagne and limousines, Mary Beth was ordering a hospital bed and airflow mattress. There were times when Ellen's pain was so excruciating that she wanted to die and times when sleep deprivation and caregivers drove Mary Beth almost to the point of insanity. But through profound love and the ability to find humor they embraced the joy of each other's company, understood the value of their relationship and honored the precious time they shared together.
