Caregiving and Time for Self

  • One reality is that we can't stretch a 24-hour day.
  • A second reality is that--and we all know this, but easier said than done, those entrusted with caregiving must take care of themselves.
  • A third reality: it's hard not to push ourselves....just this one time or just a little bit more...but it's not good for us if it must continue over an extended period.
  • And the last reality--at least for me--is that my time for keeping up with my blog remains in short supply for the time being.
Having set mental markers in my head to warn me of when my ability to remain helpful to anyone, even myself, is at risk--I have asked for help several times since my husband's surgery to replace his aorta and mitral valves on February 4.
