Dealing with the bad days
4/16/2005 10:13:03 PM
in sickness and in health





Sometimes there are days that cannot be defined.
They are run of the mill easy to forget,ones we call
just another day. Nothing memorable happens. I think
most of our days are like this and in one respect we
are content with this. However, when special days,and
holidays, occur it's always a good break in routine
even when we get upset with the extra work involved or whatever.

Then there are the bad days, whether work related, family friend, lover, sickness,or whatever. These days tend to make us appreciate our "routine ones"

There are also the days like 9/11, or tsunami, the catastrophic ones that affect the whole planet. these are the kind that may really effect and change our lifestyles, for good.

Yet, the hardest are the ones that are so difficult for families.When ill health attacks our senior members and families are called on to care for their, grand parents or parents etc.One of the hardest is when Alzheimers strikes.

This can be so devastating. A person loses control of themselves to such a degree that they need constant help with everything. It is one of the saddest things to deal with.

It is at these times when we realize how fortunate we are to have those routine non-eventful days, and we shouldn't complain about them, but be thankful for them.

My best friends husband recently had a stroke and the change it made in their style of living and all of the decisions that had to be made, had us realize how little any of us ever plan ahead for these type of events. Even though we know they are prone to happen as people age.

I thought I'd share this because another friend whose mom has alzheimers just had to put her in a home and it broke her heart, and has the whole family in a depressed state. This is never easy, but it helps a lot if you have prepared for it before hand with some plans. So sit down and discuss with your family how best to handle these traumatic times. It will be a blessing if and when something happens.
