Linda, I loved your Sep 28 blog entry: Put My House in Order



Oct 02 2009 by L.S.Fisher
I still have a huge inventory at my house. Someday I'm going to have to part with some of my collectibles and a whole lot of junk! I didn't have time to get rid of things, I only had time to put them in plastic tubs. Maybe this winter...

Linda, how are you doing on the clean-up? I can understand. After the Station Fire scare where we packed a fraction of our treasures to evacuate, I think I need fewer things!

Thanks for writing on my whiteboard.

I am familiar with your blog.

I am interested in having you contribute an article to the Alzheimer's Reading Room.

So much for relaxing--I started sorting through old statements, paid bills, etc. yesterday. My living room looks like a landfill right now, but I've already destroyed a box of things I don't need.

Linda, you go girl and enjoy your relaxing time.

Thanks, Mariah. Sorry about your mother. My husband had early onset dementia--cortical basal ganglionic degeneration. I wish you the best.

Karen, I have a tendency to work on my lunch hour too. There just aren't enough hours in the day. What I'm hoping for a relaxing lunch hour! Maybe take my book to the park or something instead of errands. I KNOW you are overloaded with work, caregiving, and life in general. But if you don't take care of yourself, who is going to take care of your husband?

Funny thing about those "stress breaks". I go to an EOAD support meeting each month (we meet for dinner) and that very same subject came up. I lost it because I realized that it's something I just cannot do. I work full time, still have children in school and when I get home I am my husband's caregiver. By the time he's in bed, I'm exhausted. The ONLY time I have for myself (and it's not even consistant) is my lunch hour. When I don't have errands to run at lunchtime, I read. That's the extent of my stress break. Good luck to you with yours and thank you for thinking of me.
