Thank you! My Compassion Fatigue is so strong for so long that I can barely eat anymore. My stomach is a wreck. People abandon animals. Animals are lonely, afraid, sickly, hungry, injured, exposed to harsh elements year round.
I've been a caregiver for about 2 years, and I really needed to hear this. For quite some time, I've been puzzled and upset at my obvious change of character: I was once sweet, kind, loving, and always willing to help. I feel like I've become angry, bitter, exhausted and unenthusiastic. I've also struggled with overeating and weight issues; this whole time I thought these were signs of my own mental and emotional weakness, but I now recognize they're a byproduct of working in an extremely demanding profession and not taking care of myself correctly.
To all other caregivers: thank you for all the hard work you do. Please don't fail to recognize these symptoms or write them off; get help so you can enjoy your quality of life. You deserve it.
I lived in Capitola and that county all my life. well 38 yrs. I moved up to PNW. I have been to Friday Harbor. I am a caregiver. #1 is TAKE CARE OF SELF ! learned the hard way.I enjoyed your talk Thank You.
I moved in with my Mom who is 87 2 years ago. Its awful I love her but I dont want to live with her. She is fairly independent but we clash all the time. I am an RN and work on a Psychiatric unit. Its all too much. I dont have anyone I can talk honestly about this. I am praying praying
Same situation over 10 yrs ifewllike I can’t go on anymore and I’m not losing my marbles when my kids need me. I’ve decided someone else needs to step in otherwise I have no choice but to apply to a care home for her.
things won’t get better but worse with your mother aging . If you can’t cope you need to find alternatives for her. If she’s independent are there assisted living units where you are? That way you get some space she gets ppl checking on her you don’t need to worry . You can choose when you go over and step out when you have disagreements . Your relationship will improve
This is an awesome video....I only wish it were longer...I will check out the website... I have been researching this stuff lately as I have really needed to for my own self care...Thank you Patricia Smith...God bless...
Wonderful work Dr Smith! Many organizations give lip service to this though are not taking it seriously enough to ensure safeguards are in place and part of our workplaces. Thanks so much for this talk. I am a nurse, ED Trauma, and have worked for 41+ years as a nurse. I am also a Holistic Practitioner and energy worker in Ontario. We need to hear more of this here in Ontario.
That is very inspiring, and it is very important for me knowing that I am not alone. I just do not think that accepting the world as abusive as it is and the entire situation as a norm, is too good. Perhaps today it is a norm, but have to change and we are the people to change it. It probably wont happen in our generation, but we have to start from something (and enable ourselves to rest in between the rescues : ).
the best the best talk i ever heard on compassion fatigue.. your story is also my story i wonder how much i have taken it forgathered never dealt as a care giver i need it i am going to show to Nurses in our hospital
Caregivers walk a tightrope with empathy on the left and apathy on the right. Some of us must maintain that delicate balance for years at a time. Too far left leaves us sick and exhausted. Too far right leaves us completely ineffective and defensive. It is truly part of the art of caregiving.
