For this festive post, I hope you can join me in celebrating how special you are, in caring for a loved one, often without recognition. Wherever you are in the world, the act of caring for another human being, is one of the most powerful and activities we are capable of.
In this post I am exploring how at certain times of the year, being a carer can mean that you might feel even more lonely, if we are unable to join others to celebrate these special times. I will explore more activities to help reduce the sense of loneliness or isolation.
In this post I discuss how, even without noticing it, self-medicating with alcohol or prescription medicines can be our ‘go-to’ way to deal with the emotional and psychological pressure of being an unpaid carer and how to manage it.
In this last of a four-part series on building emotional resilience, I chat with a Positive Anger Management expert, Tanya Heasley, about how to identify it and some practical resources to help you to manage it.
In this third part of a four-part series on building emotional resilience, I am talking about ‘carers’ grief’, how it is different to bereavement grief and outline some practical resources to help you to manage it.
In this second part of a four-part series covering four of the most prominent emotions carers experience throughout their caring journey: guilt, resentment, grief and anger and today we are discussing with resentment.
