also agree... none of us signed up for 'this'. so - just doing best we can, and know we are not alone.
We actually had a few decent days in a row. today not so much. tomorrow... who knows. Just dealin' as it comes.
This lonely road is definitely a difficult one to walk. Especially as it is virtually impossible for others to understand. In fact it reminds me of what wise king solomon once said “The heart knoweth its own bitterness; And a stranger doth not intermeddle with its joy.”
What did he mean” Can we always express our innermost emotions —whether sadness or joy— to others and share with them precisely what we are experiencing? And can one at all times fully understand how another person feels? The answer to both questions is no.As an example, consider suicidal feelings. The one having them often cannot clearly communicate these feelings to a family member or a friend. And others cannot always recognize signs of such feelings in their associates. We need not feel guilty when we do not see these signs and fail to take helpful action. This proverb also teaches that although it is comforting to turn to an empathetic friend for emotional support, humans are limited in the comfort they can offer. We may have to rely on God alone to help us with some difficulties some difficulties.
Sometime we can get frustrated when others don't seem to care enough or don't understand but the fact is they are not capable of feeling what we are going thru because its not happening to them and as we all understand even among Caregivers we cannot completely understand the devastation that occurs with each other, we can only offer our support.
