Family first, or me first?

I’ve been off grid this month. My Dads been sick, like, intensive care on a ventilator for weeks kind of sick. I honestly thought we’d lose him. It felt like someone pressed stop on my world. He’s not out of the woods yet, but I’m feeling a bit more human and my brain is firing up better! I’m writing here because family trumps work, hands down. I’m truly thankful to my boss (also me) who quickly recognised I needed time out, to relieve myself of pressures that could wait. I focused on ME. My “energy”; eating well, getting rest, sleep and keeping up with exercise, so I was in the best shape to “be there” for Dad. I'm no use to anyone if I am malnourished, tired or exhausted. Many thanks sent
