Dearest Pam: I am so sorry for you and for your sister. What a terribly frightening time. Thank goodness she is beginning to feel better. But you, you take care of yourself too. I know, easier said than done, but it is so important. Caregivers so often become ill themselves because of the stress and the work. So, please, make sure you get some rest.
Please don't take offense. This is just the repressed Jewish Mother in me coming out. I'm sure you know all about what you need to do to take care of yourself. And I'm sure that it ain't easy.
Now, also, I want you to know, you have absolutely nothing to apologize about. Not one thing. I was just thinking of you. I enjoy it whenever you have the time to check in. Please don't feel bad about your absence though.
Have you ever heard about doing BodyFlex in the car? It may be just the boost of energy. What I do (when I remember to do it) is grip the steering wheel and pull on it with all my might as I breathe out, breathe in, and then expel a body/flex breath and hold as you keep pulling on the steering wheel, pull my stomach in and then release the strong grip (of course hold on for safe driving) as you breathe in.
You can also work different muscles in your arms and push in the steering wheel with all your might.
Now - you might be self conscious.
It's always best to not do this at a stop light with people on either side of you. LOL.
So Pam, you are always always
here. We miss you, but we sure understand.
