Finding Peace After Caregiving

Dealing with PTSD from caregiving has been incredibly difficult, and there are days when it feels like a heavy weight on my shoulders. The feelings of guilt, sadness, and anxiety can be overwhelming at times. But I have learned that it’s okay to take a step back and prioritize my own mental health. Finding peace has been a journey of self-care, therapy, and support from my loved ones. Through mindfulness practices and seeking professional help, I have been able to understand and process my feelings. It’s a slow process, but I am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I want to remind others in similar situations that it’s okay to seek help and prioritize yourself. You are not alone, and there is hope for healing and finding peace.
