I do not take myself out of the Circle of Care

We family caregivers are prone to take ourselves out of the all-important Circle of Care:

We make sure that our loved ones get the respite they need, but never give ourselves a break .

We make sure that our loved ones have all the medical attention they need, but forgo our own basic checkups.

We make sure that our loved ones get the nutrition they need, but only eat meals that are ordered through a clown’s mouth from a fast food drive-through lane.
