Caring for Caregivers
Jill Armijo has been a physical therapist assistant for almost 30 years. About 5 years ago she found herself in a wheelchair, overweight, arthritic and unable to bear any weight on one of her feet at all. Her physical condition was a result of not taking care of herself emotionally. She had devoted all her time and energy to working, taking care of her children, and being the primary caregiver to her husband, who is unable to work due to physical and mental illness. She decided to find a job she could do sitting down because of her physical restrictions, so she went to health coach school and learned how to be a health coach. It was at this school that she learned to lose weight, got rid of her arthritis and got back out of the wheelchair. She now runs miles, does Yoga, and lifts weights for exercise, without any pain.Read More
