Afraid I Would Die First

I was afraid I was heading toward an early grave.  Daily, I endeavored to excel as my Mom's caregiver, despite battling low self-esteem and purposelessness. Each day felt like a struggle against inner despair, questioning my adequacy. After 16 years, I found myself in a cycle of moral conflict.

I observed other caregivers, like me, grappling with deteriorating health, often passing either before or after their loved ones. I sensed a greater destiny for myself in this life. If you're in a similar situation, wrestling with fear and guilt, I might offer assistance.

Mama B's Final Requests to Her Caregiver 

Nobody truly appreciates the selfless work of a caregiver, and sometimes it feels like nobody cares about you either. It's always your instinct to prioritize others before yourself, but until you prioritize your well-being like countless other caregivers, you'll continue to serve others without experiencing the true fulfillment of life. It's up to you to make a difference and remind caregivers of their immense significance.

Mama B uttered these words, as she entrusted me with two promises before she passed:

1. take care of her son Chuck "Warren" and keep him out of trouble
2. continue the shared passion as caregivers, and strive to create a meaningful impact on the world by uplifting humanity
