As a parent with an addicted child, you understand the depths of stress that comes with just simple day-to-day living.
It often feels like you’re walking on thin ice just trying to approach and communicate with your addicted child.
The noise level keeps you up at night while they noisily play video games until the early morning hours.
Just getting proper nutrition and rest for your child becomes a worrisome task.
The struggle of this addiction is real and it’s very troublesome for many families.
And the journey to getting your child to move towards a thirty day detox of games, to a point of successful harm reduction, or to complete sobriety and recovery can require your full time caregiving. It can wear you down, it can physically and emotionally break you.
Here’s a short blog on caregiver stress that I wrote for Game Quitters for the month of April, which happens to be Stress Awareness Month.
If you are experiencing caregiver stress and need support, and you haven’t yet reached out for help, or you know someone who needs this kind of support, please get in touch with me. I am still accepting new coaching clients.
