Don't miss:

    Welcome! This is an incredibly supportive community of people. I hope you find it as helpful as I have. I feel like I’ve been around so long (here since June 2010) that Denise may kick me out soon!

    The really, […]

  • Pegi,

    I understand what you are feeling. My mom has been gone over six years. There are times I miss her so much that tears spring to my eyes. I would love her support as I deal with my husband’s health. I […]

  • ThumbnailLast month my cousin e-mailed me to make sure everyone at my house was okay because I hadn’t blogged in a while. Since February 4th, to be exact. Frankly, I have composed some brilliant, witty blogs – all in my […]

  • Richard,

    I understand your frustration. On a daily basis, I’ll ask my husband how he is (yes, I am on his POA) and he’ll say “fine”. It takes digging to find out that maybe that day he really isn’t. When my […]

  • Denise,

    I was so sorry to read your e-mail this morning. I hoped that it was sent by someone who had hacked into your account and that it wasn’t really from you. I know maintaining this business has been a […]

  • ThumbnailI am not Jeannie, as in I Dream of Jeannie, nor am I a genie. I do not grant wishes, I don’t look like Barbara Eden, I don’t live in a bottle or a lamp, and I don’t have a master. I think I’ve given the wrong […]

  • ThumbnailMy husband has dyslexia, so he’s never been a reader. He peruses the newspaper (yes, we still get a daily paper) and if he reads anything, it’s an article in the business section.

    My husband doesn’t like to […]

    @denise I’m logged in on the iPad and desktop right now and have found the chatroom on the desktop, but I can’t seem to type in anything!

  • Denise,

    I suggest you contact the AZ AARP and state Legislature and offer your services as a paid consultant to help them set up a program like New Jersey’s. You’ve got the research and experience and their […]

  • G-J commented on the post, Update: It’s Been Rough 3 months ago

    As caregivers I think we can be wonderful at caring for someone else and just terrible at caring for ourselves! When life knocks us upside the head, whether it’s a cold, tooth issues or a migraine, we beat […]

  • Oh, I’m sorry to hear what you’re both going through. I’m miserable when I can’t sleep and console myself with the thought that at least I’ll sleep the next night. It doesn’t always work. And then, not being one […]

  • Congratulations! That is wonderful! Thank you for sharing your story!

    ThumbnailThings have been going very well here since Steve moved to a lower dose of one of his medications. He has been reading, his spirits are better, he seems to be remembering things, he’s napping less and he planned […]

  • The gift that would make me feel like someone outside out house gets it is a gift that includes a family member spending time with my husband, a day at the spa for me (booked by someone else so I have to go), […]

  • I hope everything went well today. What a wonderful Christmas gift it will be for all of you to have your mother back at home!

    Kudos to your husband for insisting you cannot do anything that will hurt your […]

  • Meryl,

    I am so sorry for your loss. My deepest sympathies.

  • ThumbnailSteve lives with an energy crisis – his own. If he does too much one day, he isn’t able to do much the next. The catch is what defines “too much” and how and when it will impact him.

    Sometimes it’s obvious when […]

  • Great job, @trish! I see you’re already in the lead this morning!

  • I like the new look! Very nice! Do you enjoy rearranging furniture, too? :)
