Welcome to Spark and the Team. I can not personally understand your struggles, but I think I can speak for many of us when I say that we absolutely MUST make time for ourselves. You shouldn't feel intimidated, Spark is a place to find help, support, knowledge, and guidance through this process. Everyone is very friendly and supportive. Just reach out and dig in!
Best wishes to you!

I have been working for 31 years and I just lost my job, I have taken care of my totally disabled husband for 17 1/2 years and I have let my own health go as you can see in my profile. I have dedicated the last 17 1/2 years to my husband . I want to be able to enjoy my life (as well as take care of my husband) for several more years and I realize that is not going to happen unless I take control of my health issues. I am very intimidated by being here.
God grant me the patience, knowledge and understanding to do the things I need to do.
