Life, And Hanging In There!!

Sunday, June 03, 2012

Often with life we get taken up with what is going on around us. Aging parents who need additional assistance, work, home etc etc. Somewhere in there we lose ourselves to only so many hours in a day. We hang in there and do the best that we can. So if you can't tell I'm struggling, but I am still hanging in there. I may not be able to check in as much as I have been, by the end of the day I'm tired not only physically but mentally. Have challenged myself over the next 30 days to check in every day even if it is just to log my food and activity. Miss all of my spark friends but choices have to be made and logging into the computer after the long days lately just hasn't happened. But keeping myself healthy has to get stuck back into my life or someone will end up taking care of me. Weight loss isn't at the fore front right now, but healthy is. So take care! Talk more soon!

    You know, your blog has taken me back in time to when I was care giver to my mom. After I moved her in with me, Life was not my own. I had very little thoughts about my own life, as I made sure she was comfortable, fed, clean and medicated. Life became even more topsy turvy when she became a dialysis patient, as she was on the peritoneal dialysis. This is one where you hook up a catheter 4 times daily to drain and fill the peritoneal cavity. It takes an hour each time start to finish.

    I gave very little thought then to exercise, and my own well being. It was enough to get through each day.

    Life happens! We do the best we can at any given moment. We are here for you, whenever you need us. hugs

    Do what's best for you - you'll still have all of us when life settles down and you can come back.

    You always need some "me" time or else you get run down and out of sorts...and that doesn't help anyone. I have been where you are and will be praying for you. The first step is in realizing what you already have. Don't feel guilty for doing the "maintenance" work it is just as important as the rest.

    Make sure to take good care of yourself and stay healthy. Try to steal some me time to recharge your body & spirit. Sometimes, this feels so frivolous, but after a little me time, I can accomplish so much more.

    I will be thinking of you spark friend,
