I wanted to update my previous post. First of all.....the abinormal....pstd, or whatever we each call it sometimes rears it's ugly head where we need to step back and re-evaluate where we are at in life. I recently reached out for some extra help through my county....not hospice....but kind of a transitioning between. Here it's called the CADI waiver. They will help me over some of the bumps, and bruises of my condition. I was accepted on the program just recently. Being a caregiver all of my adult life......this one is very hard to accept. But saying this and walking my parents through it a few yrs. back....I know it's for the best. I want my family just to be my family.
I need some bars and a chair in the bathroom. I need some extra help with cleaning and cooking. There will be a person helping me navigate all the legal paper work...alieviating some un-needed stress in my life. I need a wheelchair for outtings now. But when I can I still walk....just a bit of a struggle. I am by NO means giving up. Just accepting some of my limitations as they are. And my dear friends I am going ahead with an appointment with that darn ENT.....if only to know what my body is or isn't doing.
You all have been a lifeline for so many. And a very positive influence to me. As I continue my journey....I know I never ever walk alone. Hugs sent ! Katie
