As a caregiver, ranting is encouraged for your mental health.
And I also know that ranting to someone who isn’t a caregiver and doesn’t understand what you are up against results in ‘the look’. You know what I’m talking about, right?
It’s frustrating being a caregiver. And sometimes you lose your patience and then spiral into guilt and shame.
To avoid this, finding a community to rant to is the key.
Who can you rant to? Take a look at your friends, your family, co-workers and find those that are also caregivers. ‘Can we talk?’, is the first step.
And I invite you to join our Facebook community, The Caregivers Collective where ranting is encouraged as is community, support and resources.
I’ll see you on the inside.
