Went to a stroke survivors & caregivers support group meeting today with my younger brother. We boo-hooed our eyes out and it's been a great release. Thank God for my support group.
Starting to have feelings of dread of visiting my mom. She's so helpless, but for this moment, it's all about me. It's about how I feel about visiting, how sad and scared it makes me feel, me, me, me. I want to be there for my mom, but I've been feeling weak and vulnerable lately.
I printed some of the replies I received on the message board to bring to her. Hopefully it will cheer her up.
