    I finally finished listening to this and I’m confused by something. You say that you chose to become a caregiver and I get that and agree with it, but then you go on to say that ‘dads leave’. Moms leave too. You were front and center to that fact not once but twice. I’m curious why you wouldn’t mention that.

      Hello Heidi, I’m obviously aware that Moms leave as well. When I was talking about this, I was kinda realizing this in real time. If I was a Mom, I would have said “Moms leave”. I was speaking g to my specific role, that’s all. Frankly, it’such more common for Dads to leave. I had never thought about the fact that I had chosen to be a caregiver. I was working through that and just said, I never thought about it like that. Some Dads would have left. I chose to stay.

      That’s all it was. Does that make sense? I wasn’t purposefully excluding anyone. This absolutely applies to Moms as well. My apologies if you found that offensive. Great question.
