This has been a difficult summer for my family. Two hospitalizations, my daughter returning home from her summer apartment, and my boyfriend out of work due to a severe leg infection has made me lose focus of what I should be doing. The one positive is that I am forced to walk the dog and get at least an hour of walking in everyday. My daughter just returned to college (her junior year) but my boyfriend will be out of work, on IV antibiotics and enduring physical therapy (he is still unable to walk without crutches). I have been the main caregiver and I am exhausted.
I know that this is a short term situation, that soon things will be back to normal... he will be off of these stupid antibiotics (that are saving his life) he will walk again and go back to work and my life will continue as usual. I thank God that things worked out for us because he could have died from this infection and a lot of people have things that are much worse to deal with in their lives.
I still cannot focus on myself... as I feel guilty and even though I know I should take time for myself I rarely do. I am just counting the days until this situation comes to a close and life goes on...
