You Support Them.
But Who's Supporting You?
As a carer or caregiver, you spend your time supporting someone who needs you around the clock. Which makes it very difficult to get a job that suits your situation. You'd love to have a little support for you. To be able to work on something that you can call your own. And gives you a reason to say, “I'm working now. I can help you later” … without feeling guilty.
Do you find it nearly impossible to have quality “you” time and feel guilty when you focus on your needs, even a little bit?
Is your ability to cope fraying at the edges? And you're longing for a way to take regular breaks so you can keep your resilience levels up?
Are you someone who feels like they are losing (or have already lost) their sense of self and who they are as a person?
