If you are a caregiver, then you are wonderful at taking care of everyone else- except you. You love those you care for and are willing to expend countless hours, energy and expense- except when it comes to caring for yourself.
Johanna & Taffy
I know because I am a caregiver- and a Mom- of a beautiful daughter with special needs. My daughter was born with a rare genetic disease that causes malformations and brain hemorrhages and seizures. She is 18, struggles to read and write, cannot live independently and has had over 90 surgeries, most of those in her brain.
I know what is to feel like you are trying to keep your head above water while the floodwaters rise; no time to care for yourself while you feel you are drowning.
I have experienced first hand the emotional, psychological, spiritual and financial drain of living life as a caregiver- and I have found solutions to share.
I literally turned a nightmare- treading water with my daughter in my arms-in the middle of a dark ocean, into a dream reality of living life with greater ease while learning a new ways of breathing underwater.
