Wednesday had been especially bad for Mom and for me. After dinner I was preparing the dogs food and Mom was arguing again, tears began to roll down my cheeks and I asked my sister to feed the dog. I grabbed my purse and headed for the car in an attempt to just get away from the situation. When I pulled out and headed down the street I realized, I HAD NO WHERE TO GO, NO WHERE!
Having a bit of a panic attack I needed to walk so I headed to Homegoods hoping seeing pretty things would help....I was in such a state that nothing interested me. I went to Michaels Craft store and did the same thing before purchasing a shake and heading home.
I had hoped that Leezas Place might be open and maybe I could stop in and read or listen to a group but they close at 6pm.
Does anyone know where I might be able to go to in the evening to just get away for a while, clear my mind and return home to face the daunting task of caring for my mother all day every day without losing my mind?
My friends are long gone as I have been doing this for so many years. It is so upsetting to realize you have no one to turn to when everything becomes just too much to bear.
