Tips for Caregivers to get regular checkups.
I finally did it. After more than two years with two painful teeth, I finally got my dental checkup and teeth cleaning! Unfortunately, my delay has caused the need for two new crowns. I've always done this regularly, but since I started intensive caregiving that has gone down the drain (as have my other regular checkups). I feel like I should be at a support group meeting saying, "My name is Amy, and I'm a caregiver who has neglected my own health." I know I'm not the only one ... and today is National Women's Checkup Day, so I decided to come clean. Any other caregivers out there want to join me in fessing up?!
