Physical Cliff

Monday, November 12, 2012

On January 1, 2012, my hubby fell down some stairs and broke his arm rather seriously. Between getting that healed and having him diagnosed with Early Onset of Alzheimer's, I feel like I fell off a cliff. Of course, that cliff included my spark diet. I did exercise all summer and did pretty well, but with the closing of the local outdoor pool and cold weather, the downward slide continued. I know I need to get myself healthy in order to be a competent emoticon caregiver. However, it is a long lonely road for now. Maybe getting back with spark will "spark" me up the cliff.

    I'm so sorry for your struggles.
You are right, you need to take care of yourself so you can care for others. Maybe you need to look for other activities that don't rely on the pool being open.

    I understand your feelings. My grandmother had Alzheimer's. It can be scary to be a caregiver at times. But, know you have people here if you need someone to talk to. Always take some time for yourself, even if it is to pop in a video and do some exercise in your living room. And always knows God is with you in this.
