I am a daughter.
I am a wife.
I am a mother.
I am a writer.
I am a caregiver.
I’ve been married to my husband for 26 years. He was a soldier. The Army broke him. It was only a few years ago that things got really bad…for all of us. I struggled to keep it all together. One day, I crumbled. I could not stop the tears, the dread, the panic, the helplessness and hopelessness…the darkness.
I’ve decided to work through my thoughts, emotions, issues through this blog. What I want to accomplish is admitting my feelings, negative or otherwise, and learn to accept them. I’m hoping to find healing through my words. I also hope that it will provide some comfort to others dealing with their own caregiver stress and let them know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE! Because, I felt so alone. And that made me fall deeper into the dark abyss that I saw no hope of coming out of.
Please let me know if you enjoy reading the things I post, if it’s helped, or maybe even offer options I have yet to think about to help me cope. Thank you for your time, service, and support.
