Making Time for Ourselves

Updated: May 9, 2019


Finding time for fun



So, let me tell you that ever since my husband was diagnosed with Progressive SupraNuclear Palsy and Alzheimers Disease, I have slowly but surely lost all sense of time. When someone you love is diagnosed with a serious and incurable illness brace yourself because, if you're like me, you won't have time to do anything for yourself.

I find myself rushing to get so much done that I often make mistakes, and boy have I made some doozies. I mailed a $48 check to Novant Health instead of to my electric company, Novec. Yeah, they both start with the letter N. I mailed off another check, or at least I "think" I did, to my credit card company only to hear that my bill is now past due. Grrrr! I even accidentally tore the front bumper off of a car and it was PARKED!

I never have time to get anything done! Do not repeat this to anyone, but today I finally shaved for the first time in months and today is the 30th of April, do you know what that means? It means that my car registration is seriously overdue. Yep, I am probably going to get a ticket tomorrow. I have not even gotten that Emissions inspection done yet.

It is so difficult for me to find time to take care of the things for me because I am so busy taking care of my husband's needs, not that I am complaining. I will always be happy to take care of his needs first. Whatever he needs I got it and I realize this is only the beginning.
