I am a freelance writer, and I want to gain more experience in writing. Some writing samples: Balancing your work and personal life can be hard, especially when you're a caregiver. Not only do you have yourself to think of when balancing your schedule, but you have to think of the person or persons you are caring for as well. To do this, you have to be very dedicated to your work as a caregiver and, also, want very much to have a life of your own outside of your work. There are many people who cannot do this, balance their work and life when they are caring for someone. They don't understand how to separate the two, and the two lines start becoming blurred in their lives. To do this, one has to have several qualities. We'll examine three of these: 1.) Be dedicated - You have to be dedicated. To both your work and your personal life. You have to want to devote its own time to each individual area to make sure they are getting the attention that they need. So many fail in this area. It takes time and commitment to be dedicated, but you can do it. All you have to do is set aside separate time for both, don't cross over the line of giving the work's or personal life's time to the other, and you'll succeed. 2.) Be honest - You have to be honest. You have to be a realist. What type of devotion does it take to be a caregiver? Will you be giving more than you can allow? Do you have the time to commit? You have to be honest about your care giving position, with yourself and your caregiver. They deserve that. 3.) Be flexible - You have to be flexible. Being a caregiver is not a regular 9 to 5 job. You're not going to start and end at the exact times, but, if you're not an overtime person, being a caregiver is not for you. Flexibility is key to being successful, for your patient and yourself. Understand that, many times, you'll have to adjust yourself to allow time for work and personal life, but, if you know this ahead of time, you'll be okay. So, balancing your work and personal life can be hard. However, it can be done, and you can succeed as long as you're able to be dedicated, honest and flexible. Securing these three areas will set you on your way to becoming a successful caregiver. Memory loss can be devastating and life changing. And, for those individuals caught unaware, it can be rough. However, it is an inevitable part of life. They wake up one day and suddenly find themselves unable to remember how to do simple things: comb your hair, brush your teeth or how to put on your clothes. Things that just yesterday they remembered how to do. You’re not able to remember your spouse’s name, a face you have looked at everyday for years, and you’re not able to remember your other loved ones’ names. You start to feel lost because you can’t remember in a world that is still constantly going on around you. You feel helpless and alone. Nevertheless, despite these feelings, please know that you’re not alone. There is help outside of your walls of non-remembrance if you choose to seek it. There are resources available to you if only you will take advantage of them. Start by talking with your primary care physician. Talk with them about what you have been feeling and that you’re having a loss of memory. Be honest in that you are scared and afraid of what’s ahead for you on this new road, and you lack direction. Aside from prescribing medications, there might be other ways in which they can offer their assistance. They might refer you to a therapist, psychiatrist and/or any other medical doctor that may be able to assist you in coming to terms with the fact that your memory is failing you. You’re not as sharp as you used to be. Please remember that this is a life-changing event for you, and you’ll be uncomfortable with asking for help. You’ll be uncomfortable with opening up about what’s not working on you anymore, but it’s necessary in order for you to get better. Moreover, another way to help yourself is to help someone else. Many times, this is true and will reward you tremendously. I know you might be thinking, “What can I do for someone who’s losing their memory. I’m losing my mind too.” Don’t listen to that negative thinking because you can help them by sitting with them, listening to their stories and going through pictures with them. You’d be surprised how an available ear is better medicine that what we take with a glass of water. Memory loss is scary. It’s lonely and life-changing, but it can be overcome. Reach out to the resources that are available to you. You never know where your help will come from.
