Life after caregiving.

Started by

I've read alot from all of you about the depression and insecurities you feel after caregiving. Whether it is a sense of loss or uncertainty about your futures, I wanted you to have a thread to discuss your strategies or fears concerning your futures and an opportunity to get advice from others in your situation.

From a personal perspective, I do not feel death is a loss or feel guilt from any of my actions. I do know that caregiving is extremely stressful and I am taking mental health time until the end of the month. For the last couple weeks, I have rebuilt relationships and have focused on my own well being. I am not going to say I have the best coping mechanisms for everyone, but it is the best for me.
