I have been MIA, but now I'm back!
Hi Mommies!!! I am have been MIA for the past week. Unfortunately, things at home have been so busy and stressful, that I have just not been in to much of a talkative mood. Matt's grandma who has been living with us for a month now is just draining on all of us. She has early stages of dementia and she is just getting worse. And now, my mom is having to go into an assisted living home. Does not help also that Matt and I have been arguing more, and I don't know if things will get better.
I am just trying to cope and breath and stay calm and do what is best for my son and myself. That includes being able to stay positive and be there for my fellow mommies like you!! This forum is what makes me happy and to know that I have a family like you beautiful ladies helps me!
Sorry to hear about your mom. How is your mom taking her new living situation?
Do you have anyone helping you out with the assisted living situation? I have a family member who worked in that field and she mentioned how difficult it is on the family many times (emotionally, mentally). Big hugs to you.
Thanks! I really could use all the love and support.
It is stressful in and of itself when we have to go from being the "child" to the care giver in a sense too. I know if and when my mom gets too sick to be on her own I will be the one taking care of everything too. Don't get me wrong, I would be happy to do it for her as I am sure you don't mind doing it for your mom either. But it would be stressful for sure.
