David thank you I am doing much better
I had not allowed my self to cry nor grieve the loss of my Mom only 8 mths ago now and a few other family issues were also bothering me .......well I finally went into what I call"meltdown"
I cried ,sobbed and shook so much for a few days I was afraid I had really done myself damage .
However I got to the doctors and explained all that was going on and thank GOD I have a doc that is wonderful ,kind and compassionate plus a few great friends I have met here over the yrs .
I gathered myself together and I realized that I NEEDED to let out those tears Mom and I were always the closest of all the other siblings and I guess I really did not want to "believe" she was gone
I know she is with her Maker and is no longer in pain or anguish from what this disease did to her
How are things going with you and Mary are there some things getting better and have you been able to read Padraigs thread yet I feel he has much to offer all of us . Have you checked out the book called the 36 Hour Day and it is a good book in my opinion
Do I understand correctly you are an RN as well ??
I am a retired RN the crohns Pyoderma Gangrenosum and other illnesses made me have to give that up and it was my love my life
I keep you and Mary in my prayers daily hoping things will come round for you's and that you will also have some help soon
In the yellow at the side is HW resources and it too has some great places to check out one being Alzinfo.com I get the newslettter every month and it has many interesting and informative articles in it .....and many tips for caregivers as well
It saddens me that 2 out of 9 of her children choose not to help out
I do understand they have their own families but did Mary leave them or not be there for them
Forgive me if I have overstepped I just get frustrated when loved ones are left after they have helped so much and given so much in their lives
Your Mary sounds like a wonderful woman and I am so sorry she has to live in this disease it truly does rob us of them
Take note that alot of research is being done and hopefully this Disease will be slowed down so others not need to pain as we and the ones stricken with it do
be well my friend and yes I loved your mail it truly lifted my heart and spirits
May Your God Bless You's and Keep You In His Arms
Gentle huggs for Mary
Take care of you as well
