S.T.R.E.S.S.: Stuff To Remember Every Single Second…

Stress and burnout are well-documented side effects of being a caregiver.  As for myself, I know that I risk triggering double or triple meltdowns with every little decision I make all day long.  As the primary caregiver, I can see that my daily choices will quickly turn into my son’s future, for better or for worse.  That’s the source of my stress.

On the bright side, I like to think that the incessant demands on my attention have sharpened my mental and physical reflexes – whether acting as a human shield to break falls and prevent crashes, or intervening with my home remedies in a crisis.  The impact of those little decisions is amazing.
