  • Lillie you have my deepest sympathy! I have a Aunt just like what you have described in your Aunt & I dread the day when she passes.
    I talked to my Grandpa every morning it’s one of the first things I did was to call him, He’s been gone almost 5 years & there are still times when I reach for the phone to call him. I would say that it does get…[Read more]

  • I love the picture collage that you are doing! I can totally relate to the problem of having pictures that no one knows who they are. We are having that problem with my Grandmothers family and sadly have had to throw out many pictures as no one knows who they are.
    When it comes to grieving we all grieve in our own way. 4 years ago Monday my…[Read more]

    @lauriezieber HI Laurie!
    Welcome to Caregiving.com. You have found a wonderful caring community! I took care of my Grandfather who passed away 5 years ago. He had been on dialysis for the last 4 years of his life and passed away from a brain bleed. How exciting that your Grandmother is 100. My other Grandfather lived to be 100 and a half. Glad you…[Read more]

  • Larry,
    I am amazed at what the rehab center is doing & that they have gotten away with doing this as they most likely have been doing this for years. Good for you & your health care team for calling them out on this.
    You are a rock star & your mom is VERY lucky to have you !

    Praying for you! I wish I had a magic wand that I could wave and make everything better!

    • Thank you, Maria. I’m sure things will improve with time. Loss of family members is so hard on me. I talked to my own Mom last night for a very long time. She made me feel lots better. I didn’t tell her how I felt. I just told her that I loved talking to her and that I loved her so very much. :) I have a bad earache right now. I have to call the…[Read more]

    I can definitely relate to working out & getting out your frustrations. I swim at the Y here. When I am stressed I can really get out my frustrations at the water.

    Jean,
    it’s funny how things will trigger a memory & make us think about our loved ones who have passed away. For me it’s been cleaning out our basement as so many things have been stored there from my Grandfather & Aunt.

  • What a great tribute to your mother-in-law! I can tell that you really loved her & cared for her.

  • Denise thanks for reading my post!
    Yes you are so right he is in alot of pain & hurting & does not want others to be happy. He rules the roost & if he doesn’t like something he doesn’t do it. My mother-in-law is a very timid person & very quiet. They haven’t gotten along for some time but she doesn’t believe in divorce. He has threaten to…[Read more]

    I did something yesterday that helped me with my father-in-law. I went to my brother-in-laws grave & talked to him about his father & how much he missed him & how he has been acting. This helped me tremendously!

  • Jan,
    Thanks for reading this!
    Yes it is a very sad way to live. I just don’t understand how someone can be that mean & ugly.
    He has dealt with his son’s death and this has just made him even more hateful. He has also never been to his son’s grave which I think would help him.
    Thanks!

    @angels
    Hi Brooklyn! Welcome to Caregiving.com! You have found a very caring and supportive environment ! This is a wonderful place. My brother-in-law took his life 4 years ago. I try to help my in-laws but they are very resistant to having people get involved with their lives.
    Hope to chat with you soon!
