Sanity in the Midst of Chaos

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

These days as I spend most of my waking hours trying to move my 94 year old mom into an assisted living facility---- and --- find a nursing home for my 59 year old brother who has early onset Alzheimer's..........

I find Sparkpeople to be a calming force in an otherwise chaotic chapter in my life...........The message boards, the tracking, the motivational and educational articles all help...........

I know this shall pass, too, but at this time it is extremely intense. I have to make an extra effort to exercise as much as usual ---- and I'm very careful about what I eat, but still it's not easy and I just don't feel like myself. I'm hoping both my mom and brother will be settled in their new homes by the holidays and that would really help get things back to "normal".....whatever that is..........

Great just to be able to vent........ emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
