What makes it so difficult, unless you develop the meditative discipline of a saint, (I’m working on it but I’m not there yet!) is the continual assault on your common sense and normal mental processes. I think that is where the fatigue comes from, and also why a break doesn’t really last that long because you get back into good old cheerful caregiving routine, but immediately you are being whacked in the cranium over and over with a rubber carrot….
One response to “The continual assault”
Yes, that is it exactly! You keep trying to make everything that happens normal so you can reason it out in your mind. And it never makes sense so you are constantly reeling.
I am off to a councelling session tomorrow. I am now dealing with shingles so we know I have to find someway to cope with it
