A Place For Mom
How many of you think that you can do everything for everyone all the time and not burn out. I don't mean burn out as in,"gee I need a day to myself" or "man am I gonna crash big time tonight."
I mean the kind of burnout that leaves you feeling as though you will never be able to get out of bed and not feel whole again......the kind of tired that makes you feel helpless, hopeless.....angry, confused........
This is how I have been feeling for quite some time now.
Caregiving is more than a full time job.
The wonderful people there are helping me put a program in place for Mom. It will be good for her, good for me, good for everyone in our home...including the furry and feathered children. We needed to do this quite awhile ago, but then again, you think you can handle it all.......
The lesson learned.....listen to your body....don't wait until life becomes unmanageable to the point of no return. All that being said, we will do our best to keep blogging away about animal antics, gardening highs and lows, and looking at life through the camera lense ;o)
