When caregiving for the elderly or for children, the last thing we think about is our own health, until something brings it to the forefront.
Then the question then becomes “Who will take care of me?” in addition to “who will take care of my loved one, while I deal with my health?”
Over the past few months, that has been the question that has been plaguing me. I am still trying to put the pieces together regarding my own health. For example, I did take some time last month (I can’t believe it’s September) and attended Blogher Healthminder.
Sure everyone has stepped up and offered help, but it’s still hard to hand over the reins. It will soon get to the point where it won’t be an option, so I need to make peace with that.
