As you juggle the million and one details – of both your life and that of your loved one, it is natural to feel tired and clumsy. Though this awkwardness is not fun, it makes sense. You are developing strength and balance and like all muscle training feeling uncoordinated is part of the territory. This is true even if you have been helping your loved one for years, because there will always be new things to learn and adjust to in this balancing act of your life. The coming good news is that, as with any muscle training, eventually you will see increased skill and flexibility. It is even likely that those muscles are showing up already.
