What are some things that any fellow supporters do to focus on their own self-care, to avoid burn out and over extending themselves while also caring for your loved one?

Good question… because the burnout is real. Especially during the holidays, and especially this year with the Covid suck.

Mine is an isolator… when he’s hunkered down and being an ass I go do fun, loud, crowded stuff with my friends. Things that he won’t do with me, but that I enjoy.
The COVID suck really got me feeling down and I didn't really remember to keep doing those things with my friends and my hobbies. I recently put alarms on my phone to get myself to get into a schedule to do my things again. My guy and I talked about how I need to do more things out in the world, with and without him. And, he said he wants that too! We are planning some more activities to get us both safely involved in our local community, too. Maybe we'll get ourselves in a good place to start this new year out well.
