I have done this for so long (since 2005) that I hardly remember life before caregiving. I want to dream about living my life with my husband, daughters, friends, etc. but don’t exactly know how. Did I forget how to look forward to things?
Half the fun is anticipation of doing something that I have been wanting to do, like trying a new restaurant or seeing a play at a theatre and I no longer have that in my life. I have had the same routine forever!
I wonder how it will feel without mom in my home.
