Why, after more then 9 months have I decided to right about my illness? Why indeed. I’ll make a long story short (perhaps the long story will appear in a future journal entry).
A journal was the suggestion of (one of my) therapists.
I’m including in the journal updates regarding caring for my mother. After some health issues combined with near blindness and very poor hearing, our family, including Mom, agreed it was best she moved from her apartment back east to Colorado with me. For anyone who has had to care for someone like my mother, there is little I will say that will be a surprise. For those who may find themselves (kids, are you listening 🙂 ) in a similar situation, this may be an eye opener.
