It’s very rare that as a caregiver you won’t feel frustrated or irritated by not having the amount of help you expected to have. How you ask for help when you’re feeling this way matters a lot because it can make all the difference in getting you what you need.
Rein in Your Feelings
Your first step is going to be getting a handle on your feelings. You’re likely frustrated, upset, and maybe even angry that you don’t have more help. These feelings are valid, but they’re not going to be useful in solving your problem. Work through how you’re feeling so that you can get past the emotion and get to a solution.
