The New Normal

Wednesday, November 14, 2018

Per my previous blog about my sister's terminal brain tumor, things are developing into what she and I are calling the new normal. She is coming to terms with her situation and loss of some of her independence I am coming to terms with how this has changed the lifestyle in our own home and lives.

Chaos comes into all of our lives many different times during our lifetime. There is always an end to it but things are always different. That is the purpose of chaos. But how we choose to respond to it is totally up to us.

Knowing I am the one she relies on at this time, I am trying to get back to controlling my food choices, exercising in some way and finding time for myself at some point each day. I realize this is how I can be best prepared for what awaits in the future.

Be prepared, Sparkers! You never know what the next phone call or knock on the door will bring. Be in the best condition mentally, physically and emotionally that you can be.

And thanks for your support! emoticon

    My sister has been leaning on me a lot in the past couple of years since her husband left her. I am also trying to find ways to stay mentally and physically healthy.

    I think you are making wise decisions about your health and are looking at this problem with wisdom and focus. I wish you and your sister well as you go through this trial.
