When I decided to become a caregiver, many things changed for me. I was in my fourth year as a volunteer advocate concerning Alzheimer’s. In my opinion what I was doing was worthwhile, and also very exciting.
The change has been a constant struggle and I have lost my perspective many times along the way, but I do the work, even while struggling.
The work involves keeping myself as healthy as possible, keeping mom safe and using social media to do what I can to share information.
When I do lose perspective, sometimes it may take a day or two, I communicate with folks that help me. Doing so is very productive. I guess two heads may be better than one occasionally.
