Your comprehensive self-care tactic guide.
“As caregivers, the stories we tell ourselves can shape the way we feel about our roles, our families, and about suffering.
We may experience a myriad of conflicting emotions over the course of a day: joy, sorrow, frustration, solace, rage, shame and pride.
Making sense of and peace with such a swirl of ambivalence requires a plan and the discipline to follow it. The chapters of this book offer caregivers that plan.
Reflecting on this book, readers will begin to write a new script for their life – a script in which happiness is a part.
We all care for those we love and sometimes that role can overwhelm us. With self-care as a daily practice, it doesn’t have to.”

I believe everyone deserves self-care.
I wrote “Self-care: From the Trenches…with Love, Humour & a Kick in the Pants” to remind caregivers that they’re allowed to live a meaningful life and be happy despite their circumstances.
I know what it feels like to be exhausted, stressed, and unprepared. As the mother of a 16-year-old son and a 13-year-old daughter with a rare genetic disease and autism, experience has been my teacher.
This book weaves first-hand stories with thought-provoking themes such as resistance, stress, energy, emotions and validation to inspire caregivers to carve out more time for themselves and to choose happiness, even when it’s hard.
