LIFE ALWAYS HAS IT’S CHALLENGES
Sometimes the world appears
To be spinning out of control,
Sometimes there seems to be no end
To the distressing news.
Sometimes it feels like troubles
Are being pilled on top of troubles.
Sometimes it can look as if there
Could never be a way forward.
And yet that way forward is always
As close as your next thought.
For no matter how difficult and
Discouraging life may become,
With each dawning moment,
A new world of the positive possibilities
Opens up to you.
From the darkest depths of despair,
Hope does indeed grow and take flight.
Out of difficult situations.
new strategies emerge for creating
real value and spreading life’s goodness.
Remember that the future
does not have to be an extention
of the past
For you can act right now to create
That future out of the abundance
Of positive possibilities.
Life always has it’s challenges.
And those challenges are
What enable you to bring
Real value to life.
Whatever the circumstance,
Step boldly forward and
Choose to move the world
This is my wish for you:
Comfort on difficult days,
Smiles when sadness intrudes,
Rainbows to follow the clouds,
Laughter to kiss your lips,
Sunsets to warm your heart,
Hugs when spirits sag,
Beauty for your eyes to see,
Friendships to brighten your being,
Faith so that you can believe,
Confidence for when you doubt,
Courage to know yourself,
Patience to accept the truth,
Love to complete your life.
have not blogged in a very long time.........although have been on Sparkpeople most days have had to cut back on most things i used to do as life somewhat dropped by and caught me some what off guard...........
The memory problems started approximately 20 years ago with my DH.
A marked decrease in cognitive ability beginning about 10 years ago and a continued decline since that time until the last few years........in all this time no diagnosis was ever established by our dr .When i first brought it up to our dr he did all the test and we saw all the drs etc.........all came out ok..the whole matter was laughed off by my DH and the dr too........i continued to advocate to my dr which he finally concluded the fall of 2017 tested him with me there and DH failed the test and he was reporting it so his license would be reveoked......
since that time we have moved to be closer to our DD and her family and the memory and anger has escalated.He was sneeking out after i went to bed and driving the car without a license he did this several times etc.......he have bought a tracker for his shoes that is how we knew.....
Finally had to involving a judge and the police to get him the help he needed as i was in fear for myself as well and my DH.He remained in hospital for over a month.
While there he was the model patient showing no anger or other issues etc.....
he is now home with a small amount of support and a 4 month wait for day programs........
we are now waiting for the next crisis as he is physically and reasonably able to manage for himself.........as an example he hasn't showered for at least i month....he is capable of doing it but no incentive to do it himself.....am told to not to trigger him so i say nothing..........
i have cried so much in the last year i feel i am cried out burnt out with little left to give,,,,,,
am doing the best i can from day to day as best i can......
this journey has many twists and turns............
we now have a diagnosis of Alzeimers with behaviors involving the frontal lobe.......
thanks so much for dropping by as always appreciate all you support......
blessings and hugs...........lita
