Caregiver’s Ten Commandments

 

  1. THOU SHALT NOT FEEL GUILTY!
  2. THOU SHALT NOT IGNORE THY OWN HEALTH!
  3. THOU SHALT NOT BE AFRAID TO ASK FOR HELP FROM FAMILY OR FRIENDS!
  4. THOU SHALT NOT ALLOW ONESELF TO FEEL ISOLATED.  CALL UP A FRIEND OR FIND OUT ABOUT RESPITE CARE SO YOU CAN GET AWAY AND DO SOMETHING FUN!
  5. THOU SHALT NOT DENY OCCASIONAL FEELINGS OF ANGER, RESENTMENT, FRUSTRATION.  THESE FEELINGS ARE NORMAL, AND THEY SHOULD BE RECOGNIZED.
  6. THOU SHALT NOT BE AFRAID TO JOIN A SUPPORT GROUP.  IT REALLY HELPS TO BE WITH OTHERS WHO ARE IN SIMILAR SITUATIONS AS YOURSELF.  PLUS, IT GETS YOU OUT OF THE HOUSE.
  7. THOU SHALT NOT FORGET TO KEEP THY SENSE OF HUMOR.
  8. THOU SHALT NOT TAKE THY FEELINGS OF ANGER OUT ON THE PATIENT!
  9. THOU SHALT REMEMBER TO TRY AND TAKE ONE DAY AT A TIME!
  10. THOU SHALT NOT FEEL GUILTY!
