Awww shucks Yogi, you are too sweet! I meant every word from the bottom of my heart. Keep staying positive!
I'm doing good considering I moved my elderly Mom from Long Island to Vermont 2 years ago (after selling her house) to take care of her, yes, I am her full time caregiver. She used to live with my older brother who was abusing her emotionally so I got her away from him.
Mom has Alzheimer's / dementia but it hasn't progressed to the late stages yet. I feel lucky that she is not aggressive but very sweet. We sing songs together (she can sing, my voice makes the mirrors crack!).. Thus I am mindful of any stress as stress could cause me to relapse. I did find a senior center where I drop my Mom off to give me breaks.
That's my life right now..
Hugs to you,
