I've Been poking around

Post by anramire2 on Fri Feb 22, 2013 12:33 pm

Hello again!
Life has been crazy. Ive recently become the gaurdian and care taker of my alzehimers father. I've also started my new nursing career and haven't been able to play with FP or on FPF for some time now. I see this place has grown so much. its so great Very Happy Just placed an order with Metina again. I need the feel the joy again that FPing gave me. I look forward to chatting with those old and new, and can't wait to learn from you all!

Welcome back, anramire2!
It is difficult to take care of your own parents.
Take care of yourself.
You have to take care of the caregiver...
and that is you.
If FP makes you happy, do whatever it is to create your own island of happiness.

Thank you so much! I did join a support group that suggested " taking care of the care giver". By doing something I enjoy. So here I am. Although I know my schedule is crazy. I know taking an hour or two out of the week will help me find joy again. I am thank
Ful for this forum and the inspiration and joy its members provide

Welcome back, Angela!
I took care of my aged father-in-law, then my aged mama and have a disabled daughter...so I wholeheartedly agree: take GOOD care of yourself!! And facepainting is such a wonderful, relaxing, creative outlet...so I'm glad you are getting back into it!

Welcome back Angela.
Enjoy every bit of time you can dedicate to face paint. My brother in Law had to look after his father suffering of Alzheimer it was not only hard physically it was very hard psychically too. I love you

I have been a nurse for 9 yrs now and have found painting to be a great change of pace. Dementia and caregiving is especially hard when you are so close to the one needing care. Always remember to take time for yourself and recoup in order to stay productive and to avoid depression. I have a lot of experience with elderly and dementia if you ever need advice or feel the need to vent PM me and I will try to be as helpful as possible
