How To Handle Having A Caregiver

Here’s the thing when I typed “how to handle having a caregiver” into google I thought that it was gonna say things like letting someone helping you doesn’t mean your not an adult or they aren’t babysitting you and that this is needed those kinds of things but no this is what I found…

The articles none of them were pointed at the person who was sick, I find it so hard to have a caregiver to let someone help me.

I’m an adult and have to have someone come here and watch me?

As of 2018 I’ve become someone who has a caretaker, and a respite care worker. Two people that watch me most of the time. I don’t always know how to handle being cared for.

From the time your born you learn how to be independent. We learn to make sure to cry when we need something, we learn that being nice and smiling can help. That we learn to crawl to get something our selfs. We learn to walk so we can do things on our own.

We go to school so we can learn we do chores so we can be able to clean our homes when we are adults.

We learn to go use the to shower how to cook how to drive so we can do things all by ourselves.

As I get the blessing of living longer and longer I’ve been needing more and more help.

My respit caregiver is kind, and she helps me by really truly is here by just being here. With the diseases I have, it can change fast. I could hurt myself if I had a seizure if I had a a reaction. And so on so on.

I am learning to find this as a way for me to help someone have a job, to know this is ok

I’m learning to look at independence differently. To know I’m still an adult. I still need help but it doesn’t mean I’m lazy.

So how to have a caregiver- be kind, tell them if you need something even if you could possibly do it yourself but you know you shouldn’t, tell them thank you and be kind to them, if they make you feel uncomfortable say something to either them or the other people in your life. Think about them like the nurse on Monk solving crimes and someone walks around and helps him he’s still an adult. (We all know Natalie on Monk was way better then the first)

It’s not lazy. It’s not crazy.

Be kind be good be love

So… Its Shay-De foodie Friday!! And its the start of food allergy awareness month. Which means that I will be posting about it. Food allergies have been in my life since I found out I was allergic to cherries when I was a young child. But it didn’t change my life fully till I was 17 years old and my body was reacting to so much food.

I found out nine food allergies then. I now have gained more and I have over all about 22 food allergies, but thats putting some of them together. But yes I have food allergies, my body doesn’t like so many foods.

I don’t mind having food allergies, its hard to live with but its not horrible. Food allergies change your eating and it changes parts of your life but its just made me more fantastic then ever, and I love it. I don’t know why but they can for sure be highly annoying.

But since its Shay-De Foodie Friday lets get to the recipe part of this blog..

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten-Free, Corn-Free, Nut-Free)

 

Now if I’m being honest, I’d tell you that I love eating cookies, and I do it so much that I’m pretty sure I’ve found ways to make my oatmeal taste like cookies.

And if you give me a cake I’d be like I’m good, because its not cookies, so since I love cookies so much. When I was told that I was allergic to a lot foods, I had to go out and find ways to make different things.

Cookies being one of them. Enjoy Life chocolate chip cookies have been a lifesaver because everyone knows I want chocolate chip cookies. So I use those a lot and oatmeal. I mean man am I blessed to not be allergic to oatmeal, I do love me some oatmeal

But back to cookies so a few days ago I was wanting some chocolate chip cookies and I wanted them bad, so I pulled together everything I had to make them, and I, being me, was trying to find a recipe to work with and I couldn’t find a good one till, well, today. I found this recipe and I had to change it a tad, but it works and the cookies I made are so amazing.

So here is how you start off

Ingredients

eggs – 1 full egg and 1 egg yolk.

2 ½  cups flour (I used one and ¼  cup oatmeal flour and one and ¼  cup tapioca flour)

½ teaspoon baking soda

1 cup Brown Sugar packed

½ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

½ cup raw sugar (you can use white sugar I used raw)

¾ cup butter (I used dairy butter but any butter works.)

2 cups chocolate chips (I use enjoy life chocolate chips)

 

  1. I preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) line cookie sheet with butter or cooking spray or parchment paper, I only had butter so I used butter and they worked good. (I basically just put butter all over the cookie sheet)
  2. Sift together flours, baking soda, and salt, set to the side.
  3. In a bigish bowl I used my kitchen aid that makes everything easier. Butter that has been at room temperature for a while (mine was about two hours) and sugars together, I let it blend together for about 5 minutes to get that creaminess I feel it works better.
  4. Add vanilla, egg and egg yolk and beat until well blended, (I let my eggs sit at room temperature for a little while you don’t have to do this step but I think it helps.)
  5. After the eggs and vanilla are really well mixed together add the flour, baking soda and salt, Now be careful not to add it to fast. I add it slowly and then just till its blended then add the chocolate chips and let sit at room temperature for about ten minutes if its still kind of not right looking let it sit longer.
  6. Put on pan anyway you please and then bake for 10-16 minutes my cookies happen to be big so they cooked for 16 minutes.
  7. Let cool and enjoy!

So that my best chocolate chip cookie recipe!! I hope you all have a good Shay-De foodie Friday!

Come back next Friday for more food recipes and come back Sunday for randomness and come back Wednesdays for Wesday the day where I rant about whatever I please!!
