Storyline

Welcome to the Storyline

A growing library of resources created to help caregivers feel
seen and supported through every chapter of their caregiving lives.

Dear Caregiver,

Wherever you are in your caregiving life, whatever you may be feeling or experiencing today, there is a place for you here at The Storyline.

Browse through the chapters below and ask yourself: What do I most need in this moment? 

  • Are you feeling lonely?
  • Worried about how to balance work responsibilities?
  • Dealing with a new diagnosis?
  • Processing Anticipatory Grief? 
  • Something else?

Choose the chapter that best meets your current situation and know that you can come back any time to try out new ones or to revisit favorites. For each chapter, you’ll find tools that match a wide range of learning styles and preferences: videos, reflection questions, guided meditations, podcast episodes, essays, poetry, processing tools, anchor phrases that can be printed or used as screensavers, and next steps checklists.

You can also choose to search by tool where, for your convenience, you’ll find all of the guided meditations, etc. in one spot.

Either way, I hope you find something that will support you wherever you are right now. Check back often as more chapters will be added soon. 

At The Negative Space, we are here for the whole story and we are happy to be part of yours.

The first two chapters of The Storyline, “Newly Diagnosed” and “Creating Systems of Support” are free and available to all. 
Other chapters can be accessed by becoming a member of The Storyline.

The Negative Space is a 501c(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing programs and resources that are financially accessible to all caregivers.
