I call her every 2 hours but she never said anything. In the late afternoon when we were at Costco picking up allergy meds I called her again. He voice sounded off so I reassured her she "wouldn't have to ever go in a facility if she didn't wa... Read more

Mum, beloved and I looked at two A-rated private facilities yesterday. Had an OK lunch at one of them...I can't imagine putting Mum there, but if she moves in with us it means our travelling is over until she dies. It's hard balancing a husban... Read more

I was tired to tears yesterday. Mum just says, "why? You haven't done anything!" Health problems, soaring and crashing BP, doctor visits, all are exhausting. Sometimes I wish she weren't around and I instantly banish those thoughts because I kn... Read more

I have to do something so am willing to try this drastic step. For breakfast I had 5 cups baby greens pureed with water and two apricots...not tasty but not awful either. A few hours later I had 24 raw almonds. For lunch I had a huge raw vegg... Read more
