Caregiver Stress… And Then Some….
This is a note of thanks. I am a woman in my early 50s, experiencing a rough patch in my family. Just to give you the scope of what I deal with, my husband has early onset Parkinson’s. My youngest son has learning disabilities. He has been struggling with college courses, low self-esteem and depression. My mother suffers from moderate dementia – she is in assisted living and I know I will need to move her soon.
On top of this, I am already a caregiver. I work as a med-surg nurse - that is the easiest, most enjoyable part of my day. I first learned about your work at my job, actually. My hospital gives out your surgery recordings to patients.
I am writing to thank you for the guided meditations. I listen for 5-10 minute stretches at a time to General Wellness and Caregiver Stress when I can, to relax and regroup. These brief rest periods get me centered and focused. I need to stay strong for a lot of people for a long time. You have helped me do that with these excellent tools.
