Daily Check In Space

Hi Friends, Family and Carers Heart

 

Caring for loved ones living with complex mental health issues can be really challenging, and the carer's experience can often be overlooked and/or difficult to talk about day to day. We have created this space so that those feelings, challenges and accomplishments can be heard, and to promote carer's wellbeing and self-care. 

 

To participate, here are 3 questions for your daily check in: 

     1) How are you feeling? 

         You can use a scale of 1-10 (1= really bad , 10= really good), if you would like to.

     2) What is one thing you have struggled with, and one thing you have done well?

     3) What is one nice thing you can do for yourself today?

 

You're welcome to check in daily, or how ever often you need to! Please just remember to be respectful and kind to each other as each of our experiences are so different. Heart

 

Feel free to tag any carers you know in this space!

2) What is one thing you have struggled with, and one thing you have done well?

Struggled with ruminating over my boys safety

Done well...ummm prepared dinner

Re: Daily Check In Space

Hi @Shaz51  Hmmmm feeling about a 6. Struggling with accepting that my girl is being transferred to a psych hospital for 6 months far far away from me but proud of myself that I only fell in a heap on hearing this news for one day. Took myself op shopping today. Didn't find anything but was good to step out of the house.

Re: Daily Check In Space

@Shaz51 @cloudcore @outlander @Krishna @Anastasia  Hey Shaz51 son2 in bed he is very nervous over the meeting tomorrow. I have mentioned to them on the phone that son2 is obsessed with guns .... and believes he has to help the voices in his head with guns to stop the entities from hurting them ....  will be interesting what they say.
