We need to redefine the margins for help.
Make it your #1 priority to ADMIT “I need help” (if in fact you do need help). So how can you proceed to identify that you could use a little/some/any help?
- Investigate the margins of help. It won’t just find you; you have to look for it.
- Solicit help in non-judgmental and accepting environments. Resources include online aids, texts (manuals), and face-to-face meetings.
- Seek and Obtain additional, specific help as required to address the needs of your care-receiver.
