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!

      Awww...I'm sorry it's been a rough week (or month). It's an adjustment having a parent or grandparent come to live with you and in doing so that creates a new dynamic between you and your husband. I hope you will find time for each other and talk things out instead of letting things fester.

      Sorry to hear about your mom. How is your mom taking her new living situation?

      I am sure it will be an adjustment for her. Hope the transition goes well for all of you.

      I am an only child, and I have no cousins, so just my Aunt, her sister, has been helping me find her a place and we are trying to clean and go through a 2 bedroom apartment and dwindle down to a studio sized amount of stuff. It is stressful and emotional because she is scared of dying there. She is only 66 and she has a lot of life ahead of her, but she is just not in a healthy place in her life.

      Thanks! I really could use all the love and support.

      That's heartbreaking to think she is scared of dying there. :(

      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.
