Hi. Taking care of yourself does not take away from others. My big problem was stopping. To do for others and then feel I did enough and do for myself.
We all have to set limits on eating, time watching TV, helping others, donations (else we would give everything away) etc.
Alice has made a great start in prepareing herself. By being prepared she helps others. Why? I hope others follow her example. They they will suffer less than if they had not followed and where un-prepared.
Just a thought.
