Self-Worth to a caregiver.
When a caregiver is worn down over the years of sacrificed care giving and, in retrospect, berated/demeaned by family members and/or the person they are caring for, this takes a toll on the caregiver's self worth... As a matter of face, ironically, the care giver often feels guilt of not doing enough!... How do you ever go back to the happy person you once were and YOU forgot?... How do you ever 'recover' from all the 'damage' to your self WORTH?... (It's easy for people or counselors to say you have to WORK on your self, but when the damage is done to your heart, how does one really recover?)
