I'm tired of cooking/preparing 3 meals a day. It's just the two of us but boy oh boy can that woman eat!! She stays slimish, I get fattish. It's bad enough I do everything here much less start making her one thing and me the other. At times I feel guilty when I buy her fast food cuz of the nutritional value....not to mention I eat it too.

The dH thing is going around, like the flu. So we understand Lu.
A neighbor's husband is 5150 holdable tonight, verbally, but not physical. I must be losing my edge, because normally I would have called 911 on his behalf.

My own just cannot think straight, trying to decrease stress here. it is important.

Talk later everyone, missing you!

Did anybody else see Betty White on the Emmy Awards? It broke my heart...........seriously. When you see the obvious deterioration of her speech and how much she has aged. She's 96, God love her, but seeing her up there reminded me of my dear departed Mom so much. :(

But she still has the wit, I'll give her that.

My whine is that my husband's comprehension level and communication skills are already lacking and now he has been put on a new medicine that has made it a lot worse.I'm just praying his body gets used to it soon and he levels out,but in the meantime,he's driving me crazy......er.

Greetings all. Its been months. I am by far not caught up by a long shot. But I do have a whine.
My whine is that I feel like I am stuck on stupid. Then I started to read some of the posts and it made me smile just reading some of the other goings on just took my mind off my own stuff gave me a needed diversion. Thanks.

Waterfalls, you are preaching to the choir here. I've always taken really great care of my skin.

No one was suggesting that we should all give up when we get older. LOL

I understand about the noise and inconsiderate people outside. Motorcycles all hours, people talking loud, etc etc. With us being caregivers it's important for us to have quiet. Unruly people come into nice neighborhoods and become a mess with poor habits. I can't even relax and read without hearing banging, car doors slamming all the time, trucks flying down the block!! To me it's a no brainer to be considerate of neighbors.

Evermore maybe your mom is like my mom. It takes her hours to get herself together. Sometimes people are just not morning people and like to start their days late. Moms psych team said I have to adjust to her needs not my own. It's about her, what she she wants. She's the senior. She also could be resisting you because of control reasons. Start paying closer attention to when she coooerates with you & when she doesn't. Her moods, what she says and doesn't say. For yourself, go ahead & do what you feel is important for the day so you feel a sense of accomplishment without depending on her to rise to the occasion. Lower your expectations of her. Her body could be changing and she may need more rest. You don't know. My mom sometines takes hours to get herself together on some days. Other days 123. What I want my mom to do sometimes she doesn't want to do. We argued all the time until recently I put an end to it. It was making me sick. Its not worth it. Your will be making lots of adjustments along the way!!! Take time for yourself, relax. Don't let the anger & resentment build up. Have a great day!
