Caregiver: Ditch The Guilt

I found that being available for myself was especially important, because if I wasn’t functioning well, nothing else with my mom or my family would either. I found myself by exercising, watching, anything that was funny or streaming platforms and hiring helpers for four hours a week who could take my mothers to her hair appointments and food shooing when she could no longer drive. It’s important not to feel guilty about “me time” it’s not selfish; it’s self-preservation- Elizabeth Ward

    I can relate; I’m spending 24/7 taking care of my husband while he recovers from an injury and it is exhausting. I will remember “It’s not selfish, it’s self-preservation”!
