My mother passed away May 29, 2007. She was in the hospital for the week prior to her death. She had been sick with alot of chronic illnesses over the last six years. She was bed ridden and couldn't get up without the help of a hoyer lift. She was a retired minister and was very close to her Lord and Saviour. I wouldn't ask her to come back for nothing in the world but missing her is killing me. I know she is better off where she is. I am an only child so there is no siblings to share the grief with. My stepfather was real good to her by being her caregiver. He isn't a healthy person himself. He has black lung and alot of other health problems. The doctors can't figure out why he isn't on 100% oxygen. We know why. THE LORD!! So I had to be strong for him at the time. My husband and myself are licensed foster parents for 5 children and have two children still at home. She passed on Tuesday May 29th and the funeral was on Friday June 1. My husband and children couldn't come up till Friday morning because of school. I live in NC and my mother lived in VA. Then to top it off my daughter was to get married on June 9, 2007. So I didn't have time to deal with her death because I had to be there for my daughter. I was planning, catering, decorating, etc. the whole wedding, along with taking care of the home front. A good friend of mine of 18 years came up from SC to help me before the wedding. She was a God send. Then on Monday June 11th I found out that the doctors has given her 6-12 months to live. She thought when she spoke to me about a month prior that I understood but I didn't. She come out and say the doctor said 6-12 months. Oh, I forgot to mention that a month or so before she passed we found out that my husband is in the early stages of Parkensons Decease at fifty years of age. I just don't know how much more I can take. My emotions are on a roller coaster. I am not used to not being in control of them. I have always been the one to be there for others not the other way around and it is a role that is hard for me. One day I will be fine and the next a wreck. Sorry for rambling on. HELP!!

Hi all! This is for those of you that have or have had the same neurologist for 4 years or more. I have been with mine now since 2009. He is one of the best movement disorder secialists in the midwest. I know he is extremely busy on the lecture circuit now and in fact not taking new patients there is a huge waiting list for him.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
