Arneeb, I heard on the news about the flooding. Hope you guys won't have to evacuate.
You have a real gift for expressing your feelings. Have you written any poems for Mike?
My thoughts and prayers are with you both.
Connie I've written other poetry... but right now... just trying to deal with day to day... trying to balance our budget... keep my job.. and provide supports alone... he has no family and I have no family... and while he doesn't have disorientation... he does have small memory lapses... some paranoia about money... and so... those things can be difficult..
Pink Grandma... some days I wish for the end... and that's selfish... cuz the wandering in no man's land has taken it's toll.... we have been dealing with this for many years... 5 for sure.. and have been through hospitalization... shunts... etc... now we're fighting depression... anxiety.. and fear... of the unknown... but we do have those fleeting moments in which we connect... but we have walled off our emotions to travel throug this period... I work with people all day and can't be a basket case... the other day I was amazed to think that it has been five years since we were together... I don't want to be explicit... and yet... it seems like just a moment ago.. ours was a passionate relationship... dealing with the lack of intimacy is difficult... but at this point... I feel as though I'm breaking when we hug... the enormous weight of our situation bears down on me... and I feel like I'm going to fall apart... so I pull back... I have to.. I'll have a nervous breakdown and lose my job.. I can't do that... so we're pretty apart emotionally except for these little breakthroughs... but we keep on trudging... one day at a time... thanks for listening.. just had to.. and I read every day... we lurkers are part of the community too and feel as though we know u guys though we don't write every day... Sandi
Arneeb, thanks for the update. I agree it's good for Mike to get out when he is feeling up to it. It may tire him out, but it's good for him emotionally and mentally.
Vitamin D3 or B3, Sandi?
It sounds like Mike is holding his own. Glad he got drained as that has to offer him a little relief. Tell him, it could be worse--I use something called Udder Cream.
