I'm at an age at which every 5-10 years I have to have a rather unpleasant medical procedure done. If you're reading this blog it's likely you're in my age group.
Had it done yesterday and it couldn't have gone better; nice people, quick procedure, kind of a la-la feeling the rest of the day.
Unfortunately, one of the issues for caregivers is that we often don't take care of ourselves. We are so focused on the caree that we may not take our meds, get enough rest, drink enough water, eat right, get some exercise and take the necessary precautions--like the procedure I mentioned--that allow us to stay healthy.
You've read it hear before, you'll read it again...if you don't take care of yourself you won't be able to take care of others.
What simple, health-related efforts are you ignoring? If you keep ignoring them what's the possible negative outcome?
Take care of yourself. You deserve it.
