I have started to turn some focus on my own diet, mental health and wellness. I am fueled by my thoughts of not wanting to put my daughter in the same situation that I am sandwiched in. Now, I realized this cannot always be helped but I want to take care of myself the best way I know how so I don't need care. I cannot say my mom intentionally put me in this position because I made the choice to care for her as much as I think I am a victim of this circumstance. I often have thoughts that she could have cared for herself much better than she did. However, she lived her life the best that she could at the time. I feel like I know better and I am able to take good care of myself. I don't see a counselor but I know there are caregiver consultants that will listen, I keep active and try to eat a healthy. I always am thinking there is more I could do. It got me to thinking, what do you do to take care of yourself? I know we all need free caregivers and more free time but that is not going to magically happen. What can you do today? Go out and intentionally do something for yourself so your kids don't have to take care of you! What do you need to support your own mental and physical wellness?
