Self Care for Carers
Caring for someone we love when they are in such obvious mental pain is incredibly difficult. I so understand where you are right now. Your experiences will be different to mine but I’ve no doubt that the feelings you have will be similar to those I experienced too. I wish I’d appreciated the value of taking care of myself. I didn’t. It took almost getting to breaking point to see I needed to look after myself. My head was so full of noise, the shoulds and should nots, all the judgement I had about myself (and Bea), the isolation I felt, the helplessness…all of it, there when I woke and still there when I fell asleep at night. Sounds familiar I’ve not doubt.
I’m here, in this guide, to give you some support, some guidelines, or maybe even some orders! I’m your cheerleader, standing in your corner supporting you and pointing you to your own wisdom what is always there to guide you.
