Pretty and Helpless

it is hard to write again….dad will be 97 next Monday ….he is doing better than I…
he is my magic….he makes me laugh and yet I’m scared of the inevitable…
caregiving has taken away my confidence…I use to feel pretty and now I feel ugly…I feel helpless….
I went and did errands today ….I listened to Bruce and escaped for as long as I could….amazing what “Rosalita” will do for you…

no one really gets what it is we are doing….life goes on for everyone….but stands still for us….
I took a few minutes to stretch, swim and breathe today….it was good..
I’ll feel good again when I know my help is making a difference ….

    In many ways the caregiver IS helpless to change the inevitable…which makes it quite understandable to feel that.
