Thank you to the staff for allowing me to join...........i am currently caring for my 81 year old mother and my dad passed away 2 years ago.........i have been flying back and forth from Fl to LV to care for them every time one of them was sick and would end up being out here at months at a time.....

 

Now I am caring for my mom who so depressed over losing my dad........i am all alone with no support even thou i have 4 brothers........they don't even call mom except for mom's day. her birthday and Christmas.........other than that nothing from them......with exception of 1 brother who does call weekly and is coming out here May 8th............I will get 5 days off which i haven had since my dad passed away from cancer........that enough for now and i look forward to chatting with all of you........thanks again for allowing me here and i hope i may help others as well as having a shoulder to cry on myself at times..........Missy

Never give up.......

Welcome to the boards Missy! I am sorry to hear about the loss of your father. It sounds as if your mother is lost without him which makes it harder... I am glad to hear that your one brother is coming to help this next week and gives you a respite. Your mother is so blessed to have you in her life - her only daughter


I imagine your mother is still grieving. How is your her health besides her loss? Does she have friends or a busy social life? How about you? Are you finding time to care for yourself still?


Well, I am excited for you to have this next week off! Do have fun and spoil yourself  Missy - I hope you are getting to go somewhere - somewhere warm and relaxing sounds nice... Thinking of you!


Hugs, Glenda 

I am sorry to say my health is worst than my mom. I have had 2 knee replacements in 18 months and still the pain is so pain my only other option now is to fuse my knee together or have my leg cut off.......i take high amount of pain meds and it help but it not what i want to do forever........

 

i am also in 3rd stage kidney failure with so many other medical issues.....i am going to be 60 and my mom at 81 is in much better shape except her memory is going and she get confused......one more thing i have to deal with is mom drinks way to much wine........

 

I WANT TO MAKE IT VERY CLEAR UP FRONT I LOVE MY MOTHER TO DEATH AND WITH SAYING THAT IT GET VERY HARD WHEN SHE GET DRUNK AND SAYS SO MANY MEAN THINGS TO ME. i know it only the wine talking but it still hurts....

 

wWhile my brother is here i am staying in bed until he leaves.....lol......I need to rest so badly that's all i want to do........thank you Glenda for the warm welcome.........

Hello Missy:

 

It sounds like  you need the rest! I am so sorry about your knee problems. That must be scary... 

 

Your mother is so blessed to have you. I am sure that drinking the wine causes you concern on many levels. There is always that risk of falling and that is no picnic at 81 - quite the opposite in fact! 

 

Well, Missy, I am hoping that you get an abundance of rest and you take time to spoil yourself and heal from the knee replacements. I will say a prayer for your recovery! Blessings dear heart!

 

Hugs, Glenda
