    Unhappy Stress and fatigue

    As you know I've become a sort of caretaker for my parents. My father can have a fatal heart-attack at any moment. My mother is so stressed her memory is almost gone. I have to constantly watch her and my dad. I am exhausted and need to find ways to de-stress myself. I'm telling you all this as a way of writing down my feelings in hopes of feeling better. I'm taking my meds and eating well. I walk when I get the chance, of course my mother follows me. I guess I'm just feeling overwhelmed and want a hug.

    Nonna,

    Maybe you can shut the bathroom door and take a long hot bath. I do that sometimes to get away from my family demands and I find it relaxing. I wish I could give you a hug. I could use one today too!

    First; Here is your warm hug filled with understanding and caring. {{{{hugs}}}}

    Please do find some way to give yourself some peaceful, stress-free moments. I am told that a few moments of quiet meditation each day works wonders. Find whatever works for you, but do try to find something.

    I wish you the very best

    Peace and Blessings
    Namaste

    Here is a big hug from me! I wish I could help you in other ways but that is all I have. Feel free to vent at any time and never forget that you are loved

    thinking of you...... and offering daily cyber hugs.
    When you're stressed, You eat Ice cream, Cake, Chocolate & Sweets. Why? Because stressed spelled backwards is DESSERTS.

    I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).
