Care for Caregivers- Stories We Tell Ourselves – A Workshop
We caregivers can be very, very, hard on ourselves. We tell ourselves the wildest stories and sometimes we believe them without thinking. Stories like: ”I can’t handle this”, I’m not good enough”, " That person is just trying to make me feel bad”, and the classic “I can never do enough!”. Maybe that’s because of stress, exhaustion, emotional overload, or [...]

These things can be terrifying, even emotionally or psychologically disabling. The stress can make us more rigid and prone to injury and illness, and unable to deal with even the smallest obstacles. Something as tiny as not being ab [...]
Are You Trapped by Responsibility Fatigue?
You may not have heard of it, but there’s this thing called “Responsibility Fatigue”. It happens to a lot of us when we simply can’t say no. The more we don’t say no, the more people rely on us. At home, at work, out in the world. Sometimes it literally feels like there’s a sign on our forehead that says “Don’t worry, I’ll take care of it”! And so we get ove [...]
