The past few months of my life have been spent with many hours assisting others, including my mother and my daughter. I’m very thankful that I have been able to do so.
Nevertheless, I realize that in doing so, I’ve neglected taking the best possible care of myself. As we all know, you really can’t take care of others if you fail to take good care of yourself.
Therefore, I need to schedule appointments with my neurologist, my gynecologist, and my speech therapist as soon as possible. I also need to have bloodwork completed, having been on Vumerity for a period of three months at this point. Secondary to menorrhagia, I need to have my iron level rechecked.
Engaging in adequate self-care is not selfish. Many women struggle with taking the best possible care of themselves, due to fulfilling their roles as caregivers.
