A Caregivers Life

A caregivers life is one of the most challenging task someone can ever try and get through. It touches every emotion that a human can experience. The thing is as a caregiver you learn early on that in many ways your life is no longer yours. It’s extremely stressful being a caregiver and it does take an emotional and physical toll and that is just the way it is and the sooner you realize that the better. I know for me I can go several weeks and be ok with it. Then I have 2 or 3 days in which I feel I just can’t keep doing this day after day. Somehow you find the strength to keep putting one foot in front of the other. As I said to my wife the other day this is by far the biggest challenge I have ever faced.  The reality of life for all of us is that one day life will come to an end.  It happens to all of us. As a caregiver you have to realize that you are not in popularity contest.   That might sound cold but when you are so devoted to this person you just have to make decisions that others will never understand. You see as a caregiver you get real leery about making plans because you simply never know what is going to happen next.

Big Changes Are On The Way!

As 2018 is coming shortly there is one thing I know for sure. That thing is major changes are coming.  They simply are and to be closed minded is foolish. The older you get and your body doesn’t work the way it used to it becomes evident.  I have a general idea what they might be and some could come pretty soon.  When looking back at 2017 it was filled with pain,suffering and laughter or in other words this thing called life. Friends have left and some are fading away and that makes me sad. The thing is one can never forget is 90 to 95 percent of people in your life are just passing through it. It’s just a cold reality of life.  For those who say they can predict the future are only fooling themselves. Experience teaches one that just when you think you have things figured out life throws you a curve ball. This upcoming year could see the loss of a large number of loved ones. That  is one of the battles that we all lose. So 2018 will be here shortly and father time marches on!
