Nadia's Story Spoke to Me...

by Driving Ms Daisy

I read an entry from Nadia, and could relate to her message.

My mother is 91 years old and I'm 56. I'm single with no children, so the obvious candidate to become the caretaker. I've lived on my own since I was 18, but have recently moved back into my mother's house for the sole reason of being there for her. I have an older brother who lives out of state, has a family and a business, and isn't able to help on a daily basis.

Nadia seemed to have a spiritual basis for her message. She said to take one day at a time and find a way to deal with the loneliness. Like her, I also believed this happened for a reason, to make me stronger and that there are lessons for me to learn here. And the lessons come fast and furious.

The best thing I liked was her LOL at the end, which indicated she has a sense of humor, which goes a very long way in dealing with our situations.

I believe in being there for family. And love is what it's all about. But the very existence of this support group proves it isn't easy. This is a great place to vent.

I look forward to reading entries about how others are coping.
