Hi all I just wanted to share this with the caregiver group today.. I know many of the caregivers are struggling at this time of year.. Stressing over christmas.. I know while I was caring for my mom the last few years I always worried about buying the best thing I could for her at christmas.. I would always try to think of something she would really like you know something very very special.. well today while I was sitting here trying to think of what I could write and read at her litttle service it dawned on me.. We gave each other the best gift ever every year.. It was our time and our love that we shared.. I hope I will remember that when I think I need to run out to buy a gift for someone.. You can not buy the gift of time or love..Enjoy the holiday.. much love D

So today was my birthday, yet it's made me feel down. I got a text from my mum and one of my sisters (I have 2 sisters, 1 brother), my mum dropped off a present and card from her and my dad. My boyfriend only remembered it was my birthday after I'd told him about my daughter singing happy birthday to me and he posted on Facebook. Then he caused an argument.Yeah I got messages on Facebook, but...
Minutes, days and weeks go by. And no one gives a care about what I am doing or if I am alive or not. I only hear from Family when they want something. Supposedly my “friends” don’t even text or call to see if i want to go somewhere or do somthing. I could die and it may be days before anyone would miss me.
