@bkryer I love the idea that your son completely removed all of these other issues and cut right to the heart of self-care. Like so many children, a little oracle right there.
Yeah, I still have plenty of rants and feel disappointed at seeming ignorance of our wealthy societies. However, after 10 years as a voluntary full-time carer my stubborn brain has had to admit the importance of choosing my battles wisely and always keeping the big picture in mind. Much easier said than done, of course, since so much of the tidal wave of information we can so easily access has literally zero care for perspective at all.
