“I feel like myself, strong and weak at once – allowed, at least for a little while, to be both.”
When my father had a stroke and was in the ICU for 3 weeks and then rehab for 4 weeks, I developed a system of sorts for emotional release. It wasn’t planned, it just happened. Every morning I found myself in tears as I got ready to go to the hospital for the day. Then I would move on from there, taking care what I needed to and pushing the emotions back down. What I couldn’t see was the toll it was taking on me, and the ways in which that impact came to surface.
Whether you are an only child or the sibling of many, and find yourself as the primary caregiver to your aging parent, you may not realize how the emotional impact reveals itself. Emotional stress shows up in several forms. It can affect your eating, sleeping, and actual physical well-being. Oftentimes the person caring for their loved one ends up needing more care than their parent or spouse.
That is why I have created this free ebook. Calm, Present, Connected covers the following:
- Strategies to Reduce Caregiver Burnout
- Keeping Your Relationships In Tact
- Creating A Plan
- Creating a Support System
- Financial and Legal Considerations
- Establishing Hope and Belief
- Shifting Your Energy Without Guilt
