I have been a caregiver for the past 3 years, to my Mom who has dementia, which doesn't leave much of a social life except for doctor appts and grocery store trips. I went to the vet with my daughter yesterday to help her with the dog and I ran into an old friend of mine. She called me by name and asked if I remembered her, and thank goodness, I did!
In talking with her, I just figured out that I couldn't carry on a conversation that really meant anything, because I had nothing new to talk about! Thank goodness my daughter picked up the slack. I felt so stupid. I am only 58 and feel like a person with no life, that has nothing to talk about and has lost touch with life. Wow, is that depressing? This is really weighing heavy on my mind. Any suggestions?
