i can’t begin to imagine the life (or to apologize for my own hyperventilating) watching cbc national on the opening of a tiny bit of day care for parents and their kids who are disabled and need 24 hour care from parents who have had no respite — for either parents or kids – during Covid so far.
And i am also thinking of ALL those thousands and thousands of caregivers, of loved ones with dementia and all the other needs, who have dealt for the last 4 months without home care, without day care, without a break. Unbelievably hard.
I want to eat, walk back, all my bitching and complaining because my pain, much as it did hurt and does hurt, is a silly blip in the wind to those in the daily struggle to stay sane and care. I know, because i was also there for years.
I am awestruck by those parents especially who have chosen to give up.all their life to their child … forever.
But also all those home caregivers who have been cast aside by the Covid winds. You have a harder row to hoe than we can imagine.
And please get in touch if there is something i can do to help. Yes I am a wounded one, but nothing heals more than helping.
