What a tremendous effort you are doing looking after all the members in your family @mum8891.

 

As a carer, reaching a level of burnout is common. Experiencing feelings of guilt is also common but this does not have to be your normal. The number of demands on your time and energy is high and you have already mentioned a few places where you have reached out for help or have existing support networks – how would you feel about accessing support to help with some of the daily challenges?

 

Looking after yourself is important and doesn't only mean deep baths and massages. Managing your energy is just as vital in self care.
