I have noticed it can take me 1-2 hours just to get out the door to have time for myself when the hired caregiver assistant arrives.
I haven't always been like this at all, so not sure just what is going on with me. I am a super organized person. It's almost like I just shut down in decision making, etc. I have been caretaking now almost 6 yrs. This seems to be happening in other areas of my life as well. When I have things to do, it seems to take an enormous time doing it to the point a neighbor, who used to help out with giving me rides to do errands, finally confronted me about this. I don't think this is burnout.....possibly overload of things on my mind. Feedback anyone?
