I’m weary and tired today. Mom has annoyed me a little bit. It’s all fine, or will be. But she can be a very stubborn woman. At times it’s like hitting my head against a brick wall. She has like 15 people – professional and family — telling her what she has to do to get better. But she can’t seem to get the connection between exercising her body and getting well. She thinks if she rests in the chair, she will get better. One day she is just miraculously going to stand up and be healthy again.
I started this blog as a journal for me as I care for my mom. I know some family members are now reading my posts, and that has caused me to edit some of what I might write. But sometimes I just need to say what’s really in my head and on my heart. Some days I might just need to express a little frustration. And that doesn’t mean that you need to help or be concerned. I’m ok. We’re ok. I just need to write it down.
And today I’m just weary.
