An excellent article about setting boundaries...

Here's a very powerful and helpful article about setting boundaries in difficult or toxic caregiving relationships, written by Carol Bradley Bursack. I found this on www.AgingCare.com, a favorite site for caregiver support, and definitely wanted to share it with other caregivers.

Even if your caregiving relationship is not toxic or you are not dealing with current or past abuse, there's real wisdom in this article about how to depressurize, detach, and draw boundaries. If caregivers can recognize their "child within" and understand what may both drive them and cause them pain when there's criticism from their care receiver, then caregivers will be able to help themselves carry on in a healthier, more compassionate manner by including boundaries.

Thank you again, Carol and AgingCare.com.
