Becoming a caregiver for my mother lead to a surprising impact, I feel that I lost myself. I no longer pursue my old passions with the same enthusiasm.

I had so many plans to create and expand my nerd empire. In the last two years, my engagement has drastically fallen off. My blogs go untouched, the podcast was never started. My reading is next to zero.

I’m constantly thinking about how to improve my mother’s quality of life while the quality of my life has fallen off. I’m just torn in taking the best care for my mother and providing the best self care.

How do I find that balance. How do I rediscover myself before I wake up and find myself to be a middle age woman.
