Once again... I am starting over. This has been the most challenging sabatical from SP. I became full time sole caregiver to my mother. It was not only difficult but I also started a new full time job a year into taking care of her.

Once again... I am starting over. This has been the most challenging sabatical from SP. I became full time sole caregiver to my mother. It was not only difficult but I also started a new full time job a year into taking care of her.

I attended a Care Givers Conference early on in caring for Mom and learned some really horrifying statistics. I discovered this is probably the worst thing I could have done to my body, but Mom needed my care. Once she put herself into a position where she could no longer live alone, she moved to assisted living. That did not work out well for her. She hated it and sabotaged her own health to get out of there... and she nearly died in the process. She is now in a nursing home and I am on the mend.

You have no idea just how glad I am that this chapter in my life is closed and a new one is beginning. In September I made the decision to change my diet to Macrobiotics. Yesterday was Thanksgiving and I created a very healthy Macrobiotic dinner, plus cooked for Mom. I never took her food to her. Long story, but she pulled a fast one on me. There in lies how I came back to SP. I just made the decision... no more games, no more manipulation from mom, I am doing everything I need to do now to put my life back on track and GET HEALTHY!
