New Here, Hello All

traffic-sign-209194_640Hello everyone. I just wanted to take a minute to introduce myself.

My name is Meghan and I am a caregiver to my husband, Jordan. We have had an extremely rough road since before we got married, but we love each other very much and that gets us through.

I've been having a really hard time dealing with things lately, which is why I went looking for some sort of support. My family and few friends are nice, but they don't truly understand what I'm going through or how I'm feeling. I look forward to connecting with people who do.

Thank you Jan and Susan for your comments_mysql. Jan, I am very happy I found this site and I'm looking forward to meeting everyone. Just the little bit of interaction I've had so far is already making me feel better. \r\nSusan, faith really is the most important thing, in my opinion. I need to do more being thankful for what I do have. I spend too much time feeling sorry for myself, and not enough time being greatful for all the amazing blessings I have. I'm working on it though, and I know that's what God wants.

Good Morning Meghan! I am new to this site too. I am sorry to hear that you are having a hard time. I lost my mother two years ago to Parkinson's disease and dementia. Now I care for my father who has a very long list of health problems. I know how you feel. Some days are certainly worse than others and some are pretty good. I don't want to sound cliche, but what always gets me through the day is my faith and looking for something to be thankful for. For me, it helps the lighten the load a little. I know today, I am thankful for finding this site and all of you!

Thank you Rosie, those are good suggestions. I am also up before my husband most days so I might have to try that. I don't have a lot of time in the morning but I like to spend it with Jesus. I read my devotional and my Bible if I have time. I always try to make time for it somewhere in my day. And I pray a lot. I don't know if you walk with the Lord, but He is the only thing that's gotten me through all this. I know His strength far out weighs and outlasts mine.\r\n\r\nMieko, im glad I was able to offer an encouraging word. I hope I can continue to be that for you.

Hi, Meghan! Welcome to a great group of very intelligent and compassionate friends. I'm sure you'll find many of your needs met here, and probably some need you didn't know you had. I especially find it helpful to blog my thoughts without having to worry if I'm being judged by people who don't understand, but believe me, these people do. Drop me a line any time, and I'd be happy to chat.

Thanks Meghan, I needed those hugs today : ). The things you said perfectly summed up the way I feel. Thank you for your kind words they have brightened my day up. I'm always here if you need to talk.
