When The Other Shoe Drops...

When the other shoe drops, you gather up the shoes and reevaluate how to proceed.

There will be times you will question everything as a Caregiver and there will be times you go with the flow. There will be times it will be difficult to understand what is happening. Life takes on a new, deeper meaning. Everything matters, as does every day. Like never before, you are trying your hardest to help to save a life in any way possible. 

Healing is a lifelong process when impacted by crisis and illness. Adjusting in midlife, caring for another, is a great responsibility. We crave stability and peace of mind. It takes a strong desire to keep our emotions in check so our voice of reason is what we speak. 

You are managing well. You're doing a good job. Keep your chin up. Don't forget you're human and you have limitations to "fix" what's happening. And be sure to care for yourself. That is one of your biggest responsibilities, and that should be at the top of your list!

Best Wishes,
Carole Brecht
