Hey everyone here we go with another #FeelingsFriday blog. It's actually Thursday night but I was in the sharing mood 😉 so I'm writing the blog now.
Current Mood: calm with a deep thought chaser
Calm because I'm home relaxing
In deep thought because I get to sit home in silence and think about what's going on in my world outside of the 9 to 5.
You see with #caregivers especially if you're a #parttime caregiver. I will only speak for myself. I feel guilty at times about being able to relax when part of me wants to be able to with my mom more often than not. To be honest and keep it 100%
I've learned that you have to take care of yourself in order to be a good caregiver. I exercise, meditate, and spend time with friends to keep from losing my my mind. I go to work with a smile on my face because I chose to think positive.
People close to me knew when the Ish really started almost 9 years ago or maybe longer than that. I started losing weight, tired because my mind was working overtime like OMG not my mom too my Dad lost his battle with a combo of #parkinsonsdisease and #alzheimers in 2008 Damm. I will write a blog post about this topic in more detail soon.
I guess what I want you as a current caregiver, or you were one in the past or you just want to visit my website Is that we all going to get old hopefully , and I hope that you don't have to see your loved ones go through this terrible disease or that you personally aren't effected by it. Just be good. Good to yourself . Good to others as we don't know what cards we've been deal
