Home, improving

Friday, January 25, 2013

DH has been home since Monday evening, and is doing much better. I am stupidly PTSD --exhausted, strung out, crying easily, overwhelmed by the simplest tasks.

Apparently, this is normal. But I don't like it.

    emoticon You've been through a frightful event and are probably still scared for the future. You are living with a "new normal," but in time you'll adapt and the stress will start to fall away. Just give yourself time, and remember to take good care of yourself too. Rest...deep breaths..staying focused and grateful in the present moment ~ that's what helps me through crises and their aftermaths.

    Glad to hear that Hubby is home and improving!

    This has been so stressful for you, I know, but take a couple of deep 'cleansing' breaths, or go for a walk around the block, or a bike ride. Have a nice hot soak in the tub with a good book, or some aromatic candles, or good music..... anything to let you relax and reduce some of the pressure of these very frightening days you have just experienced.

    You have to take care of yourself first or you may not be there to share in the wonderful future in store for you and your hubby. If your Mom is anything even remotely similar to mine, you probably grew up being told over and over again, that "This too shall pass and then the sun WILL shine again"..... emoticon

    Sometimes, being sick is harder on the spouse than the one who is sick/ill. I often felt that way when I was very ill and my husband had to care for me many years ago. I think he had the harder time because he had all the responsibilities and all I had to do was recover.

    It will get better....

    Remember to take care of yourself. I have found it is almost more stressful for the caregiver than the patient. That is what happens in our home anyway. ((HUGS))
