I resent that I can't visit with dad over the holidays, because I wanted to return to help him clear out more of the closets and spend time with him over what might be a very lonely holiday for him. I have to remind myself that he's healthy and mobile right now, and that I can return in the spring to visit with him if he stays well through the winter.


Resent - sometimes I resent it when doctors and nurses think they know everything and want to do things there way without considering the fact that Mom's disease is very complex and she can't be treated like others are treated. \r\nReturn - I then have to return to the thought that they aren't setting out to hurt and injure Mom, they want to help but just don't know how.\r\nRemind - I have to remind myself that no one suddenly becomes an expert in RSD. It took us (and is still taking us) time to figure out action and reaction. \r\nI need to be more patient with people, and not let the past let downs in the medical field to make me assume that no one wants to help Mom, or that they are out to hurt her. 14+ years of fighting seems to have made me a bit skeptical :(


When frustrated I will try my best to:\r\nReset the Tone - greet anger with love and understanding, meet resistance with patience and perseverance.\r\nReturn to Love - help ease tensions by assisting us to return to a place of love by sharing a loving memory to recall a happier more pleasant time, giving a hug or a kiss.\r\nRemind - myself that I am only human and what I do everyday is hard. Remind myself that my caree's are only human and what they go through every day is hard for my caree's, too.
