Caregiver You Are Not Alone -Amy’s Story

Caregivers have so much to do, day and night, for weeks at a time. Of course it’s exhausting. It leaves one drained physically and emotionally. This is the hardest, most long lasting, thankless time of one’s life, until it is done.

Only after one has had time to recover can one begin to appreciate the special moments of clarity that will reveal why it was a gift you didn’t know you wanted. Laugh or cry at the prospect now, but I believe this to be true. It happened to me.

Until then, give yourself a mini break each day by letting go of one thing that can wait until tomorrow. Walk away from the demand that every little thing be accomplished as it used to be.

Let go of what was to embrace what is. One day at a time.
