Caring For Yourself Too

By in News on April 6, 2015.

It is important to remember that your loved one’s depression can also have an impact on your emotions and wellbeing.  You may find that you feel some of the following:

  • Worried and Anxious,
  • Frustrated and Angry,
  • Overwhelmed,
  • Burdened with Responsibility,
  • Embarrassed,
  • Resentment,
  • Sorrow,
  • Loss, and Depression.

Some of these emotions may be intertwined too, which is common.  For example, you may feel sorrow and frustration.

It is important to acknowledge your emotions, whatever they are – there is no right or wrong.  Research indicates not expressing or acknowledging our emotions puts us of risk of ill health such as stress related headaches, gastrointestinal complaints, impaired immune response, cancer, and cardiac problems.  It is therefore important to look after yourself if you are to be able to help others.

Writing or talking about your situation and reactions to your loved ones depression can enhance your physical and mental health resilience.  Other things you can do to look after yourself is get support for yourself, keep a journal, educate yourself about depression, ensure you are getting physical exercise, maintain your routines, continue hobbies and interests, have a break away from your loved one, maintain friendships, and take time out to relax.
