    Paperwork. Grr...

    Jrzy I hear you on the paperwork mess. Having had to do 3 peeps in one year was NOT fun. Mom’s was the worst and I’m still waiting to hear back from the state. Errors and such on this end too. Hang in there. We will get through this. If we could fight ALS, we can fight this. HUGS

    Well, Wed and Thursday were definitely days I’d prefer to forget. Our internet and server went down at work. Got there at 8 each day and never really got any work done until 1-2 When things got back up. Stayed till nearly 5 both days. Yesterday everything was fine and I finished the week...

    The Next Part of the Journey

    I say that forgetting is good. Somedays I forget too. The tat sounds interesting. Not something I’ve ever wanted to do, but I know some love them. Do what makes you happy. And I think your Brian’s sentiments about living your life are true. I imagine mine would say the same. He was not...

    The Next Part of the Journey

    Lenore, many days I don’t want to come home because Brian is not here. So far no luck on a new home. You will know what’s right for you when the time comes, I understand it. So nice you will be away for the holiday. Enjoy every minute you can. hugs

    The Next Part of the Journey

    Hugs as you contemplate the holidays. Not easy to navigate. I was in a state of shock last year I believe and just moved through Christmas. This year headed to my DDIL’s family in Honduras. Both kids are going so we will be together, but far from home. I question it, but maybe it will be a...

    Thank you Everyone! Jrzy - that had to be difficult. I know I have cards tucked away somewhere, and if and when I move, they will surely come to the surface. Not sure about that. I was doing more files and came across something he quoted in 2009. That was very hard as his writing was that...

    It's been four years

    V - I so feel you. Everyone one of us CALS always feels like or felt that we were running behind. We lived on the high side if the street, the garage was a level below the main living area. We opted for a stair chair. He actually used it quite a while. When he could no longer use it due to...

    Been and up and down week. Today at work, I was cleaning out some old drawing files. Found Brian’s writing on them. Yeah, glad it was end of day and most were not around. Hit me like a ton of bricks. Esp since he had not been able to write for years. Therapy last night was good. Still...

    Thank you Tillie. I mean where did this year go? I mean I know with also losing both parents etc, but how did it go so fast. They say don’t make any major decisions, and I haven’t, I haven’t even had time too. So surreal. It almost feels like it happened to someone else and I’m just an...

    Well I made it through Brian’s BD. Now into the final month of the first year. So far so good. On edge, but not sobbing. Crying here and there. Trying to readjust to DD being home. We have our differences. She is an awesome girl, but she is so much like her Dad it’s hard. I’ve been...

    The Next Part of the Journey

    Love the plaque Lenore. Beautiful. Happy you enjoyed the gala. Haven’t done anything with the ALS group yet. Was going to do the walk was in bad head space that day. I’m glad you could go. Sorry the job doesn’t seem to be quite what you expected. Hopefully it will all work out. I hear...

    I truly forgot what it was like to work full-time outside the home. I have not done that since before DS was born. I’m stupid busy. Barely time to catch up here. Life is slowly getting better. Hugs all

    6 weeks

    Jrzygrl - almost 11mo here and I still get hit. Less at times and they are a bit further between it seems, but it does still happen. You are doing just fine. I know that therapy has been helping me. While it’s not for everyone, if you find a good therapist it can be invaluable. Don’t...
