I became my brother’s primary caregiver eight years ago; my brother taught me everything.  You know, from his catheter, ointments, how to put on a bandage properly.  You know, he taught me the condom catheters when he was still using those.  There were actually times where I, we ended up going to the, you know, to the hospital together for his doctor’s appointment or whatever, and I actually showed a nurse how to put in the indwelling catheter.  That’s basically what I call myself is an underpaid nurse.  You know, I don’t know if it’d be different for me working for someone else, but what I’ve learned is repetition is the best.  To continue to do it, to keep the same routine of doing it, so that way you get so good at it, that it’s second nature to you.
