    Re: Talk about your troubles

    I just got off the phone with the women who helps me with my mom. We are setting up Hospice care for my mom. It's hard to say how I feel. I know my mom want's to die and her quality of life is nil. I'm going to miss her but have been missing her since she has dementia.

    I'm so thankful I have the woman who helps me or else I would feel overwhelmed. She has a funeral home in mind and will help me with sorting things out. All and all I'm very lucky and blessed and I like to think when my mom goes to heaven she'll meet my dad, her dad (who died so long ago) and her mom and all of her friends. What a great party!

    I just made myself cry writing that!

    Ugh. I'm also thankful for all of you so I have a place to not only talk about my favorite shows but to vent and share. I've only told my best friend and you all!

    {{{beerbelly}}} I have no words of comfort other than to say you are an amazing young woman (judging from your Facebook posts and from what you have shared here) and have been such a wonderful daughter to your ailing mother. I hope you can take some comfort in that.

    Sending you big hugs....

    Oh ECM! Thank you so much! I do think I have done everything I can with my mom. And I know she loves me with all of her heart.

    Thank you so much for saying that. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it!

    Beer you are such a lovely free spirit. I hate that you have to process all this.
    Count your blessings!

    Re: Talk about your troubles

    Thank you! It helps that you are all here. Funny how you have never met me but know me. I guess I am a free spirit!

    I just started to write who to invite for my 'celebration of life' party for my mom. I only can think of 12 people so far. My mother wasn't big on people (unlike her daughter who acts like a puppy around people!)

    I checked out the funeral home that was suggested and it looks great.

    Have a great time on your cruise!!! That would make me happy!

    The first time I took a cruise was with my mom. I took my dad's place since he died. It was great therapy! We cried, drank and watched the waves. We reminisced.

    Again, I'm really blessed that I had these wonderful times with my mom.
