This involves assisting her to use her walker,washing her hands...etc
But she doesnt do anything!
Its driving me crazy!
I have been caring for her alone for 4 and a half years now.I get 4 hours respite a week.
Shes deaf,nearly blind and still treats me like the help,as if there is something wrong with me,when I tell her shes just been.
I was just coping with her behaviour and caring for her,but this is really exausting.(I am also renovating the house as we have to move,trying to work part time at home,and remain sane living in the centre of this noisy city).
What do you do when you just want to scream?
Never had communication with her but it was so sad to hear about her sudden widowhood
I watch movies or hear a song and think my dad would have like that.
I miss how he kept other family members from attacking me. But he did raise me to take care of myself.
I miss how the kitchen was our play ground. Us cooking together enjoying the food that we prepare.
I wake up some morning were I just can't catch my breath. I know he is with me; I also believe that all the wrongs that my mother & brother have done to me he now see it.
I pray that he forgives me for I did not know the truth. My heart is heavy at times because I did not realize that he was the one who truily loved me, and that my mother lives in a world were she believes she did nothing wrong because her love for me was right, but her love was just to use people and it was always that way-I just didn't see it.
It is sad that it took my dad's death to make me see the truth.
I just pray that he sees the hard decisions I make everyday and is proud of me. That he looks down and says, "that's my girl".
I wonder will this ever get easier?!
Just wanted to get that off my heart:(
She responded to one of my first posts. Later I heard her story and was amazed. Wishing you well
Mmmm....bread and butter pickles.
I dunno if I should be encouraged like that, lol.
Ok, this is my current "jam" as the young people say. It's a musical collaboration with Buffy Sainte-Marie and Inuk throat singer Tanya Tagaq. (Remember Buffy? She is 77 now and rocking rings around the rest of us musicians.) I can't stop playing it! I must now hear it at least 3 times in a row before I start my day.
I ordered the whole Buffy Sainte-Marie CD ("Medicine Songs") - because I need this in my car!!! It should be here by the end of the week, fingers crossed. (Also ordered her previous CD, "Power in the Blood" - that's the one that won the Polaris prize mentioned below the video.)
What is a bear is when a relative changes their last name completely. It can really mess up the search.
My Mom's mother changed her first name from an old country name to a more American sounding name.
Then there are countries that have changed their name. Like Yugoslavia was broken into 6 separate countries.... Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Croatia, Montenegro, Slovenia, and Macedonia. Yikes !!
! But if the need to vent arises, feel free... . I already did!
So ok glad you're here!! 🌹💜
Tha was crazy!! I couldn't believe the grown men who actually cried over that!! What shame....
So glad you're here! While I don't know much about planting, I am interested in growing lavender and Jasmine in pots! Planting anything in the ground gets trampled by the wild life here.
Im going to Google both plants and give it a go! Let me know what you find about it also. Lol, we can do this heehee 👍😀
I started writing my comment before Stacy and Cwillie made their comments. By the time I was done and posted it, it was far away from Riverdale comment, which I was planning to just relate to her feeling non ambitious today
(But it snowballed)....lol...I write so slow.
Anyway after reading Stacy's story, I want to hear more of it!!! Plus I feel better.
My son just came home from work and told me he's taking me to see my all time favorite music group.....TKA on labor day weekend!!!!!! They will be performing at the resort my son works for. Woo Hoo!
I spent my 20's following them around in Manhattan and New Jersey.
What a difference 30 minutes can make!! Life is crazy.
Im feel blah myself. Got up this morning saw all the dishes , garbage full, beds unmade, popcorn all over Mom's floor, days worth of unopened mail on the coffee table, etc....told hubby, I just can't keep up with all this cleaning, cooking twice a day and taking care of Mom's every whim!
My bathroom and living room look like medical storage rooms. I've been running on 2-4 hrs of sleep, then when it catches up, I crash during the day. I live on coffee and cigs. I feel sick to my stomach with no ambitious, not to bathe, not to shop, nothing.
I have " fatty liver". After monitoring my enzyme levels and bi yearly sonograms, for 3 years, my Dr referred me to a gastroenterologist. I was supposed to see him last month, but cancelled. No time.
My hubby and I spent 2017 running around treating his rectal cancer. Months of near daily
(Mon-Fri) radiation treatments. Chemo treatments and LOTS of appointments with each individual specialist on his care team. After the surgery we we're elated he didn't get a colostomy bag, as Dr wasn't sure going in.
At that point is when I started making the weekly 6hr trip to Mom's house to clean and try to help her. That only lasted 2 months. I took her home with me and the rollercoaster ride began.
Hubby went for his first 6 month check up the end of June, and spots on his lung were found. There was nothing there in his pre surgery chest x-ray. (Nov 2017) This is new. The Dr they sent him to see for a biopsy, said they were too small and impacted to get at. He will check them again in 3 months. Oy.....
Sorry for my verbal vomit, it really didn't start out that way. Obviously I needed to dump...lol. ❤️
