Any kind of caregiving is a tough job and I know some of you care for others that are in worse health than my Mother, I think of all of you every day and hope that you are taking care of yourselves. You cannot take care of someone else properly until you realize this.
Caregivers, taking the responsibility for others often neglect themselves. They see their responsibility as exclusive to the care of their charge. Do not place unreasonable demands upon yourself. Like I mentioned before you need to take care of you and do not think of yourself as a superwoman! If you have neighbors or friends that offer to help, let them! Take advantage of their offer and take a break.
Mother and I get into some spats, I try to keep my temper under control and sometimes that is very hard to do. I take a deep breath, go outside and just let it all out. I have actually screamed like a Banshee and then I’d say a little prayer, it helped. I then go back into the house and apologize to my sweet Mom and she does too.
Things are happy on the home front once again. http://e740def2oql0ap44gd0a41mo95.hop.clickbank.net/
