You know, that's an excellent question. I was just thinking about
this on a personal level the other day..I give and give to my kids and my husband and other family, all the while not taking the best care of myself. I am to the point where I am getting burned out and that of course is only making my fibro worse. Why do I do this? I am not sure where I learned it-I wasn't raised by my mother and the grandmother who was the main female influence in my life during my formative years wasn't like this at all. Yes, she gave and cared for everyone around her, but she also took time for HER and what she wanted to do. Then again, by the time I was born she was in her 60's, so maybe self care was something she just finally put her foot down about
at some point? She's no longer alive for me to ask her, but I have to wonder..
Good conversation-I'm glad you've joined us!!
