It may be a disagreement with your caree or with family members about what’s best for your caree. It could be a decline in your caree’s abilities or in your ability to continue to bite your tongue. It might be a solution which now seems to be a problem or a need which can no longer be ignored.
Or, you could just be brewing about how bad the situation seems to be.
Brewing doesn’t have to be about what happens to you.
You can control the brew.
You can brew a pot of coffee to share with a good friend. You can brew up a plan which helps you and your caree manage the day better. You can brew a magic potion (joining a support group, starting a journal) which gives you solace in the face of pain. You can brew a break that feels frothy, frivolous and fun.
Something’s always brewing in caregiving. But it doesn’t have to be the witch’s brew. Why not brew what you need?
