Not sure why I became a caregiver all those years ago. It may have been to get a good paying job. The place I worked I had too many people to care for at once so I didn't stay long. Also there were not enough people to do the job the way I was trained. I like to assist people. My personal achievement I am proud of is having worked, saved money and certified as a yoga instructor and in turn I was able to help change a woman's life. I have raised a son who is 25, I went to his cancer treatments with him when he was about 22, I have been married about 26 years and would like to touch more people and have this positive affect touch others like falling dominoes. I would eventually like to have a yoga studio.
