While I am the primary caregiver, today I had a medical procedure and realized that the caregivers have to care for themselves and plan/prepare relentlessly. For the first time as caregiver, I was afraid for my own health, and worried about who would care for my caree if I were not able to do it. While my procedure was not serious and went fine /never was expected to be risky ( I am back home), I was totally nervous all day because I could not drive to the hospital for myself (had to get an Uber), had to leave my caree at home as per normal (yet worried what I would do if anything had gone wrong during the procedure and God forbid I had been detained or admitted) and felt tired all day trying to rest yet still offer the care. It worked out thankfully, yet I felt somewhat vulnerable today for the first time in 10 years as caregiver, and it made me think even more about planning and self care for the future. I have back up yet realized I should test the back up plan more (ie contingency / stress test) as my careee and I journey into the future.

Hi James! Only your first comment is moderated. Once you post a comment and it's approved, all the rest of your comments_mysql are immediately published. I have a database of comments_mysql so can track the number --they fall in order based on time, regardless of whether or not they are moderated. So, I'll follow the timeline to find the winner of 30,000.
