    Sharon, it is often hard to remember to find the moment in front of you -- we spend so much time in the past, and looking ahead. A lesson I work on daily.

    Here is a very positive link on resources https://www.aarp.org/caregiving/loca...aregivers.html for caregivers

    Your name is not Susan?
    I am so sorry, I have no idea why I call you that...
    Won't happen again.

    I am sorry to hear about your mom.
    But she is very lucky to have you around to organize things and give her the care she may need.
    First we raise and take care of our children, after that we take care of our parents and some day our children will take care of us (hopefully).
    The circle of life.

    Sharon (my bad - someone noted you as Susan...) I have a wonderful paperback Caregiver book; I'd be happy to mail it to you, if you think it might provide some comfort or ideas. I had a "muddle" of about 5 years due to medication, and my poor husband and oldest daughter had a time. My PCP listened. They diagnosed me with Parkinsons, when it was the meds. Grateful to have dodge it. I know how difficult it was for those trying to care for me -- I was pretty resistant and finally paranoid. Life's a trip, yep!
    I am content, which is probably the same as happy; my life is in most areas way better than its ever been, and certainly the return to reasonable health has been some of it. Adult children who are successful and good citizens, good friends with each other, and contribute to the world in positive ways. So in spite of me, they are pretty darn remarkable. And Jim. He's just one of the best human beings, say even people who've known him for 65 years. I really feel fortunate. Lots of men would have just locked me up!

    Good morning, Susan! I've been thinking about you this morning for whatever reason, and hope things are going well with your mom. It's a big adjustment (and one I think my daughters have reason to fear, lol). Love your canyon photo! You do a wonderful work encouraging others with practical information.

    Just touching base. Peace!

    Thank you! * blush*
    I was a bit reluctant.
    But I really like this forum.
    There a a lot different points of view in the US, compared to the European ways of surgery, nutricion, products etc.
    But I find it very interesting to read and learn from the different perpectives in this forum.
    And, although I am still a bit shy (which is so not in my character, lol) I like to participate more.
    Thanks again!

    So here to nudge you to get the Nokia (was Withings) BodyCardio scale so we can connect and encourage each other :-) check out all that it measures, and I think if you buy it through LoseIt or MyFitnessPal food log apps you get the annual subscription free (I received with that offer a few weeks back), but decided not to renew LoseIt and instead logging food on Fooducate app because it also gives micronutrients data.

    How are you feeling? Is your recovery going well?
  12. oh No!!!!! don't tell me that the hot flashes wont go away. That was my only inexpensive hope I guess I will have to check out the bioidenticals if I don't get the great side affect of coldness.

    thanks for sharing

  15. Hi - I hope you are feeling better - this s a slow (but steady process) I am learning. You can't be in any rush - and if something doesn't feel right, check it out! I have a follow-up appt. next week to see if I am getting the right nutritional balance. Really looking forward to finding out!
