Loveandcaring for elders, I can relate,I have 4 kids 22,20,18and 13 and I'm my mothers primary care giver.She has diabetes, she has autoimmune retinopathy(she is legally blind, sees shapes, shadows,not much else) 3 weeks ago she was diagnosed with lung cancer,removed monday! Just thinking about what people like us do in a week/day/year can be exhausting. I have,degen.disk disease, nerve damage in hands and legs, hypertension, carpal tunnel; but my care is not at the top of my list, quite the opposite. anyways hope you have a great week, It's kind of nice to 'meet' people with similiar interests/lives, sometimes those 'closest' to us don't always understand or want to! : -]
