Fort Richie is not far from Hagerstown, Maryland where I live now.
I went to Lackland AFB in San Antonio, Texas for basic training, then to Maxwell AFB in Montgomery, Alabama, married, and went to Lockbourne AFB near Columbus, Ohio. It was renamed Rickenbacker. I was never stationed in Maryland or close to this state.
I put my reading material in the bathroom, nobody will follow me in there, lol!
You owe no one any apologies for how you handle taking care of Ray. Don't make the mistake of trying to do it to suit others. You have to do what is best for you and that will ultimately be good for him. Flylady says something like: On an airplane, they tell you to put your oxygen mask on first in case of emergency, before trying to help someone else.
This is true, you have to take care of yourself so that you will have energy and be healthy enough to take care of others. (Ray) I hope your day is blessed. 5 hours ago
I use Flylady.net to help me. There are times due to pain that I can't do much, but learning from her, I manage. I am just putting this here for your information. I know how hectic caregiving can be. Please, don't ever feel that you have to answer anything that I write. It is important to have time to yourself to recharge.
I was in the Air Force from 1970-1972 also during the Vietnam era. I never was trained to use a weapon and never carried one. I could have taken the carriage off a manual typewriter and thrown it at someone, lol!
Don't worry what others might think, just help Ray. This is one area where others are quick to give advice, but don't know the half that is entailed in another's care. May God strengthen you as you do. 1 day ago
