Yes is a word a Caregiver says regularly.
Yes, you will take your Loved One to this appointment and
Yes, you will take your Loved One to another specialist appointment.
Yes, I will remember to buy your medicines
Yes, I will make it better for you.
You will say Yes, to so many things your Loved One needs.
That is the reason You are Phenomenal!
You a rare, extra special, exceptional person!
Remember to ask yourself this question!
When do you say Yes, to doing something You Need too?
You don’t need to feel guilty.
Because, Care giving means, caring for the Caregiver too!
But I don’t have time?
This is vitally important – You need to make time!
I haven’t had my hair cut for as long as I can remember.
I would just love to…
Taking valuable time to value You is even more important as taking time for another appointment.
So schedule Yes Me Time! –YMT and write it in your calendar in your diary or on your phone. It will be our secret! Only we really know what it means!
Remember YMT is not negotiable. This isn’t something you can put off for another time, when something else important comes up. You need to promise you it would need to be life threatening for you not to give yourself YMT!
