Subject: Just the night before Christmas in Caregiverland
We always celebrated Christmas in one form or another with Mommy. I don’t have many memories of the holiday with my dad because I was very young when he died. One year, I remember he brought me and my sisters those black and white shoes because they were so hard to ruin. Yes, I was Tom’s girl!
Does anyone remember these hideous shoes?
When her mother came in 1997, she was She was independent, walks, drives, takes care of her business affairs, cooks and feeds herself. Christmas was full of fun and food. Our favorite board game was scrabble.
One day, everything changed. Independence turns into a dependency during the holiday season, and Caregiverland He was born in Missouri City, Texas. Over the years, the season of Christmas has become difficult and different. From mom shopping for Christmas gifts alone to giving out money cards because shopping is no longer possible. In fact, I’d rather cash anyway to limit those gifts you receive, your smile of gratitude is fake, and in the back of your mind, you say, “What do I do with this?”… Hahahahaha. Regvit, I came here. very funny!
Caregivers may smile, but the truth is that work continues, even during the holidays. Bathing, dressing, feeding, lathering, taking care of sanitary conditions, maintaining medical equipment, making sure medicines are given, washing clothes, drying clothes, changing linens, handling business affairs for loved ones, and doing it all over again, with little rest and limited sleep. In Texas, for example, we rarely get a Christmas vibe – the Experience “Winter Wonderland”. This year, the temperature will be 80 degrees Celsius on Christmas Day. This Texas is for you!!
To all Caregiverland caregivers, try to spread happy memories with your loved ones and enjoy the good days no matter what the day brings. Sometimes you have to dance like no one is watching. For those who lost our parents, those who gave us life, I support you. I think about you.
I know from personal experience that many of our needs as caregivers are unmet. We hide the extent of our feelings, so we don’t seem angry because our life journey has changed. You know, and I know, we are resilient spirits, even on days of feeling hopelessly challenged. as Proactive attorney for your caregiver, I want you to know that while Christmas can be different and difficult, you are awesome! You are gorgeous! You are exceptional. You are gorgeous! You are a winner every day, all day long! Promise me you’ll do anything, anything, for you! Be safe! Be good!
