We get so locked into our situation as caregiver that we forget what life used to be like. Unknowingly, our 'outside' world begins to take on different 'normals' and little-by-little shrink the very exsistance that makes up our life... Most times, we caregiver's dont have support or, even worse, have family/friend opposition. All this effects our health and happiness, so what must we do to gain our 'self' back?... By finally cracking (knocking down the mentally blocked walls around us) we retrain our 'self' to climb out and go forward... (even forcefully, if we have to). We are no different than any human being seeking happiness... So, we have a choice... I'm starting to relearn my steps... finding new friends, doing things I normally wouldn't do... It's a start... Come along with me on this continued journey... Let's move forward... What are your thoughts?
