Finished Caregiver Class
This is a class to teach the person who is taking care of someone they love to care first for themselves. If I am not happy, rested, strong and able to do so, how can I care for someone else. I see that all the little things you do for yourself help both of you. I know when I miss a few nights sleep or am not feeling all that great I am frustrated with every little thing that happens. My temper can be quick on those days, and although it is not always directed at my husband, I can sure make it sound like it. They told us to make an action plan every week, like; I will read 1/2 hour, four times a week, or I will walk with the dog 1 hour 5 times a week. It helps to motivate you, and we all need that little push. I hope with winter coming I can practice what I have learned and care for me first, (sounds so odd to put one self before others) I know it is going to be a challenge but I am better prepared for it now.
