What a fun week!
After my realization that I was self-care deprived, Denise and I launched this self-care challenge:
Take care of yourself, take a picture of it, post it on social media using #mycare for a chance to win a prize! The prizes of an “I Care” t-shirt and a $25 Visa gift card were just an added bonus because the real fun was…[Read more]
Thank you for sharing such a personal journey. I cringe when I hear parents saying things like this to their kids. It hurts well into adulthood. You have such a resilient spirit though as you continue to figure out your mom and what makes her tick. I just want to give you a big hug right now! I hope the healing continues and you…[Read more]
It is so difficult! I hope I don’t fall back into the routine of putting my self-care aside when Robert returns home. It’s very difficult not to when the decline and changes happen so quickly. All we can do is take advantage of the moments when we can give ourselves a little self-care. Hope you find time for a little #mycare!
I realized I was self-care deprived the day after Robert was released from the hospital and temporarily placed in a Skilled Nursing Facility. It was a Saturday and my to-do list looked like this:
I didn’t get everything done on that list the first weekend but I had an immediate and overwhelming sense of…[Read more]

Fun fact about me: I was very involved in acting when I was younger. Aside from high school plays, I also did community theater and even was an extra in a few movies and television shows. In fact, on the set of one movie (and not as part of the movie), I almost got run over by a bicycle ridden by Emilio Estevez!
Pegi, I love hearing such good news! You and Jim are both an inspiration and an example of how sheer determination can get one through the seemingly impossible. Sending you both continued strength and love. Big hugs for you both! <3
Jane, We’ve had similar experiences with Robert in a wheelchair. Usually people are very helpful when we’re shopping or out at restaurants but the worst courtesy we’ve seen is at the Skilled Nursing Facility where he is right now! I can’t believe how difficult it is to get him in and out of the front doors and am just flabbergasted it does not…[Read more]

Wow, I am very impressed with that young supervisor. Good for him for being open to seeing the difficulties his employees face. Look how many people you helped in that one day, @Denise! Great job – I hope you are able to do many more of these presentations.
So happy we’ve met through caregiving.com, Casandra! Your story touched my heart from the get go since your hubby was having seizures. It’s amazing how we connect with people at just the right moment. Hugs, love and laughs! <3
Jo, Congratulations! It’s wonderful to hear from you and to get an update. My heart goes out to you as you deal with these challenges and changes. I absolutely love the quote and what you said about perspective. You have such a wonderful attitude (and your mom warms my heart as much as she always has in your stories). Much luck to your son as…[Read more]
