New: Canadian Groups

canada-153127_640

On Tuesday, @jeff sent me a tweet suggesting that I add a section for family caregivers who live in Canada. Oh, my. I have no idea why I didn’t think of that. We have a few members from Canada (@oscargal @jeff and @dkridingshotgun) and have room for as many more who would like to join us. So, I’ve added groups for our Canadian members, one general group (Canada) and one for each of the provinces. ... Read More »

Reality

If only your life were a reality television show because then there’d be a chance it wasn’t really real. It’s not that you don’t have parts of your life that you love. You do. It’s just that often you have too many parts of your life which you can’t fit together, which create that awful stress which wakes you at midnight and which cause that pounding headache you can’t shake. So, while some of your ... Read More »

What a Wonderful World

we are blessed

During the month of hospitalization and the beginning of dialysis my husband has lost 40 pounds. Now he is a big man to begin with and of course the mid section got bigger once he was not able to walk. Now he doesn’t have much more to spare. He has no appetite. He tries to eat; the most he ever manages is a few bites. “They” say this will pass as his body adjusts to ... Read More »

As hard as it is to think about caregiving ending, I think the knowledge that it ends helps you let go of what doesn’t matter and hold on to what does. It’s tough, though, because the grind of caregiving can cover up what really matters. An insight from your future ... Read More »

Ain’t life grand? With just a few button pushes, we can listen to music, read the headlines, or communicate across the world, but in spite of these modern miracles, technology still struggles to express the very nuances that make us human. Very recently, I posted on Facebook that I purchased tickets to a Broadway show coming to town, and that now I was searching high and low for the perfect “date” to accompany me. My ... Read More »
