well i went to cleveland this weekend just me and hubby, my mom in law kept kid, and i feel so great and relaxed. time away from all the stress of work and being a parent does wonders. we were finally just husband and wife and not mom and dad. it felt great. i feel like a brand new mom. and on top of all that i came home and read on my "i almost cried post" that a person joined because of one of my posts and that my story of my mom really helped cause this person said that their mom was similar. it put a smile on my face to know that i  helped. i didnt  think that i had that much influence on anyone. im sorry this isnt on hepatitis but i just wanted to say i feel so refreshed and happy. and to the poster i helped i am glad i did as that would be what my mom would have wanted.

WG, so glad you were able to get away and just spend time with your hubby.  You both needed and deserved that!

Big hugs,

In my seminary class today, we discussed how difficult it is for caregivers, and how much of a physical and psychological toll caregiving takes.

Two years ago, I took a seminary class on "Caring fo the Caregiver". That has helped me tremendously in my ministry and in my life with Frank.

I've learned that some Hospices give similar classes. You might want to see if there is one available for you.

Now that you have survived all that you've gone through, and are committed to being there for others, that might be helpful.

Hey worried girl, I'm glad you doing well. I'm happy you made time for just you and hubby and you had some quality alone time together. It's so important for a marriage when you have children to make time as a couple. never give that up, even if you just get to go out for a movie,dinner,picnic or what ever suits your fancy. Try to do this "atleast" 1-2 times a month.                                         Take care,

Dee Dee
