I Learned to Walk and Chew Gum
Over the last 2 years I’ve had to make major changes in my life. The rewards and challenges of care giving to my spouse provided me an opportunity to change for better. My health had deteriorated in all areas, mentally, emotionally, physically and my energy level greatly diminished.
I was forced to take a step back, re-evaluate my life and find the best possible solution to be able to carry on. Undoubtedly, the stress of caring for my loved one with a chronic condition, multiple sclerosis had gotten to me, impacting negatively on my health.
I knew it was time for a change and a new direction. First, I had to learn to become selfish so to be selfless as I continue to care for my spouse.
My responsibilities were weighing me down and I had to face that fact. I could not keep doing the same things to expect a different result. It was time for successful action to effect positive changes, so I took that action.
We moved from our house to an apartment and that action immediately made a major difference. My responsibilities were greatly reduced and my stress level immensely minimized.
I took time to focus on my health getting as much rest as I possibly can. Cognizant of the fact that my body has the ability to heal itself I gave my body the help it needed to make me well again. I slept and slept until I felt strong enough to move on. Six weeks later I resumed my exercise regime with proper nutrients, rest and relaxation, with emphasis on my nature walk, my natural therapy, throughout the year.
As I began to feel stronger in my overall health, I knew I needed a diversion to keep my sanity intact. I could no longer continue on the path I was on, I must have mental stimulation and enrichment for myself. I went searching the internet and found that enrichment and mental stimulation through Wealthy Affiliate.
Since joining Wealthy Affiliate on February 4, 2015, I have grown by leaps and bounds. With persistence and effort, I have created my first product a book, ‘Caregiver Triumphant.’ Caregiver Triumphant will be available on Kindle within the next two weeks. How awesome is that?

No matter what obstacles get in your way, and they will, take time to think and find a way to cross over those obstacles.
