It has been a very long time
Saturday, April 04, 2015
Well, I had a giant blog typed out because I have been gone forever it seems like and when I tried to post it, my session timed out and SP ate it
To sum up, my mom had something happen to her in August of last year, it was misdiagnosed as a seizure and she was way over medicated. I have moved back down to Alabama to take care of her and help out my stepdad.
Mom's official diagnosis is dementia, but in the meantime...while the doctors all had their hands in the pot stirring and fishing for no one but themselves....mom has lost all ability to transfer herself from her bed/wheelchair/potty/etc. So my stepdad and I have a fulltime job caring for her.
I had let everything else go by the wayside over the last 3 months that I have been here, and have put on 20 pounds over the last several months. I am not happy with this. I have no energy and am worn out physically and emotionally. My beau and I were very close to splitting up but we have decided to work things out because it is worth working on.
I had been doing a lot of stress eating along with depression and boredom but am not willing to go back the way I was. The last couple of days have been pretty decent on eating, since the yellow squash and zucchini are looking so nice, I have been adding a lot of that to my diet and trying to cut back on the potatoes and carbs.
Mom is doing ok, but she is not able to pace or wander by herself so when she gets restless, we do a lot of transferring her to her wheelchair and bed.
I miss you guys and hope to have a bit more time online now that I am as settled in as I am going to get!
