So this is not really a question, but if I don't use a question mark my remarks seem to go to some abyss that I can't find.
More of an update!
Last Friday I went for the first time to a local caregiver support group meeting. Not sure how that's gonna shake out. I'll give it a few more visits before I make a determination as to whether or not it's worth while.
More importantly, today was my first visit to see a counselor/ therapist.
It was overwhelming to realize how my childhood etc has totally affected how I am trying to deal with the sudden (and unexpected) responsibility of caring for my Mother as well as my Aunt.
I was with the counselor and his wife for over two hours. So many things came to light.
The most important takeaway from today, and the reason I am posting this, is that I (we all) need to just let the tears and emotions flow!!
Find at least a few moments where you can totally have that all out, no holds barred cry!!
Holding it all in is only hurting you!
I have been trying to be brave and strong. Truth is I feel totally overwhelmed and in over my head.
I know many of you are feeling the same way.
I am so grateful for all of you and the advice to seek counseling !!
We are all in this crazy reality together! We are not alone!
Many blessings to you all!!
