Gotta Stay Healthy
I know it doesn't sound possible but this is the first time that it has ever hit me that I can't afford to be sick. I haven't felt good since last Friday and after a week it finally hit me that I CAN'T get sick. I am the caregiver and caregivers just don't have time to get sick. What really got me was thinking about what would happen to my brother if I were not here to look after him? I can't believe I've never thought about that before. I just assume I'll always be here to take care of him. How naive is that? I know it is silly to worry about things that haven't happened but it really did shake me up to think I can't afford to get sick. Thank goodness there is nothing seriously wrong with me but it did give me cause to think about the situation. I'm sure this is a concern for all caregivers.
