Standing ovation for Dad's WWII service.\n

Goodbye hug with friend moving away


Being told how wonderfully well I am taking care of my Mom with such calm dedication. But not one person has EVER asked me just how I am REALLY doing. They just hand out a compliment so that they do not need to get further involved. I cried after getting Mom from the wheel-chair into the car. I cried while hauling her out the car and back into the flat. I cried as I almost carried her to the sofa where she sits and I then went into my bedroom - shut the door and cried until my entire pillow was wet. And even doing that no longer brings relief. I am totally burnt out and no one knows or cares to know.\r\n\r\nColette


Lack of hope, wondering for how much longer I can do this solo care taking bit! I have cried buckets and loneliness has taken me to depths in my soul I never realized were there. :-(\r\n\r\nColette


Mad at myself, should know better.\r\nTrying things too much for Tom.\r\nFrustrated for being frustrated.
