No matter how small, find some support
I recently met with a who was so busy with appointments and health concerns for her loved ones that she could not get started on her own needs just yet. When I call her to follow up and remind her how important her own needs really are, she told me “just talking to you makes me happier and gives me a break.”
She also said, “knowing someone cares is help enough.” Find someone to talk to. If you do not have a support system already, call your Caregiver Specialist! Other supports may be friends/family or local caregiver .
