ME Partner Caregivers Support Group
SEPTEMBER 08, 2019 @ 04:00 PM - 05:00 PM EDT
Who am I? It is a question we ask ourselves, especially when we experience changes in our lives. While answers may not be readily apparent, it is still a worthwhile exploration.
So often a large part of our lives is taken up by caregiving, but we are not ME/CFS. So much of our time is spent managing the condition (appointments, meds, life accommodations) so let’s devote one hour talking about YOU instead.
I’d like to invite you to consider only ONE question ahead of our time together so we can jump right into the conversation:
QUESTION: Who am I?
We will refrain from answers that involve a profession or job title or a role we play in the family. Instead, go for something that’s quintessentially “you.”
Some possible answers might be: I’m a tinker – I like to make or fix things. I’m a philosopher – I like to think about deep and abstract stuff. I’m a teddy bear – I can sense it when others need comfort, and it makes me happy to give hugs. Reader. Organizer. Urban farmer. Marathon runner. Poet – everything I think about or feel end up as fragments of poems. Story-gather. Horse whisper. Cat magnet.
Some questions to get ideas:
What makes me happy? What do I do when I go to my happy place?
What have I always done that makes me feel free?
What comes naturally to you?
What others marvel about you?
The goal for this conversation is to affirm and own the fabulous person that YOU are.
