Hello everyone!!! This seems to be a very inspiring group. I hope to contribute as well as receive. Unless we take care of ourselves first we can not give 100% to anything or anyone else. I still have to work on it every day as do most of us. Look forward to getting to know you all.

Peace, joy, and good health to you and yours ~Faith

Hello Elizabeth. Thank you for the welcome. I'm sorry to hear that bad circumstances have forced you to realize that you needed to care for yourself. I too have always had a bad time at saying no, and the first times I said it I was full of guilt. However, lately I find that the more I say it, the stronger I feel. I think it's one of those things we have to practise. For instance, my oldest daughter wanted to go out, the day after she'd recovered from a very serious flu. I said no, and I was right to say no and I felt good about it.

I do hope you keep looking after yourself. We're no good to anyone if we make ourselves so exhausted we're sick all the time. Sending you lots of good energy, hon!

Jane - welcome.  I have been very bad at self care, and now that some horrible things have happened in my life and I'm doing so much for others, I'm burned out, and I am beginning to learn to say no, to care for myself a little.  It's a start.  One little thing at a time.  [ send green star]

Hi Everyone, my name is Jane, I live in BC, Canada. It was a fortunate thing that a few days ago I was introduced to I have lots of health issues, and yet I manage to work myself into the ground taking care of my wife (same-sex marriage in case anyone is confused ) and our two daughters. I have never been taught to put myself first - my mother being exactly the same. However, I've got to the point where I've recognized that I really need to do self care. I look forward to meeting you all, taking time out from working so much at home and at my volunteer job, and get some tips on how to stop burning myself out. (((huggs))) and bright blessings!

Hi, my name is Penny, I am new here so I thought I would say hello! I am terrible about putting myself first, its usually my kids and my mom and siblings, and so I dont do a lot for just myself.. Hopefully, I will gain some knowledge as how to do that, cuz I could sure use the help! Thanks- Penny  [ send green star]

Hello everyone. June 21, 2006 10:58 AM

I just joined the group so I'm posting to say Hello.   I'm not sure what else to say, but I'm glad I found you and I'm working on learning how to care for and take care of myself, my heart, my life, so I can share and care for others without hurting myself.  [ send green star]

I am going to love this group. I have spent the last 10 years being a caregiver to my disabled brother and I think I got lost somewhere in the process. Hugs to all of you!
