About Me: Female, 63, Mesa, AZ, member since Feb 2013
I am 62 yrs young. I played sports until the age of 50, I enjoy working in my garden, yard, arts and crafts. I enjoy reading. I love spending time with my grandchildren.
For the last 10 years I have a fulltime caretaker for my brother who was affecte by Agent Orange. taking care of him ha placed a tremendous toll on my body, by lifting him and watching him 24-7. I handle all his affairs medical and personal. He has Dementia and needs to be watched carefully.
In lieu of all this my life has been at a stand still . I have neglected my health mainly because by the time it comes to me I am to tired.
I still spend some time with the kids but my brother makes it very hard for people to come over anymore, so I spend time with myself and my duties in my home. I personally maintain my house.
I am on social security disability so it hard to hire others to help me.
Aside of everything I try to maintain my sanity and a positive attitude. I love life, I love my kids and my brother.
I just wish somedays that my brother was not ill and I did not hurt. To live free of pain is all I want now.
