BE PRE­PARED TO ASK FOR, AND TO AC­CEPT, HELP

Some car­ers feel they have to do ev­ery­thing them­selves, be­cause they be­lieve they are best at the car­ing role and fear that some­one else might not be able to do things as well. How­ever, says Cox, it’s im­por­tant to ac­cept that while some­one else might not be as good at car­ing as you, they will still be able to keep the ship afloat while you take a nec­es­sary break. So don’t be shy about seek­ing help from fam­ily, friends and health pro­fes­sion­als.
