View Full Version : Stress and fatigue

05-07-2013, 04:49 PM
As you know I've become a sort of caretaker for my parents. My father can have a fatal heart-attack at any moment. My mother is so stressed her memory is almost gone. I have to constantly watch her and my dad. I am exhausted and need to find ways to de-stress myself. I'm telling you all this as a way of writing down my feelings in hopes of feeling better. I'm taking my meds and eating well. I walk when I get the chance, of course my mother follows me. I guess I'm just feeling overwhelmed and want a hug.

Maybe you can shut the bathroom door and take a long hot bath. I do that sometimes to get away from my family demands and I find it relaxing. I wish I could give you a hug. I could use one today too!

First; Here is your warm hug filled with understanding and caring. {{{{hugs}}}}

Please do find some way to give yourself some peaceful, stress-free moments. I am told that a few moments of quiet meditation each day works wonders. Find whatever works for you, but do try to find something.

I wish you the very best

Peace and Blessings
