Family…………

I may have posted this photo before.

People who love someone with cancer “has it too”

But the caregiver? “……is also dying from it.”

    I hadn’t heard from you in awhile. You are so right! I hit “like” not because I like your situation but because I so know how you feel and agree with the above statement. It’s a hard place to be and unfortunately no one can “fix” it, but know this we (your blog friends) are here rooting for you, praying for you and supporting you all the way!

    I understand. That happens. I was fortunate in that regard, my siblings were all supportive. The ones who were troublesome were outsiders, neighbors and such. Not so much with Dad who had cancer but with mother who had Alzheimer’s. She would pace for hours every day, so on the few times we attempted to take her for a walk to expend some energy, or so we hoped, she would sit down and throw child like tantrums in the driveway or sidewalk. She was strong and mobile until we were out in public. Her dead weight would make it difficult to lift her, so we would plead with her to get up. On one occasion a neighbor came by and she obediently stood for her making it look even worse. We never could figure that out, but the neighbors probably thought we were abusing her. Thank goodness we had Hospice and others closely monitoring us to verify we were not. When she passed away, they told us, they only wish they will get as good a care she did. But, it was still hard to take the nosy rosies and know it all’s of this world.

    I get that, sometimes family is nice but not exactly what is needed. I have lots of stories on “what we should have done and how” advice from idiot family folks.

    Micro managing seems to be a disease as well. They probably mean well and are trying to sort it all out for themselves more than for you
