Tiredness, tiredness everywhere

 It's been a difficult couple of weeks including settling on a care home and everything that entails. The difficult couple of weeks culminated in three nights of very little sleep, no daytime naps and a husband who can't find his way around the house he's lived in for almost 37 years. For only the second time ever I think, I have sobbed on the shoulder of a friend and really, really not known which way to turn.

Now going away for a few days to recover leaving a competent team in charge and helped by friends who've insisted I'm too tired to drive to the station. Normally I would have trotted out the usual line of 'I'm ok thanks, I'll manage' but this time I just said 'yes please' to the offer of the two hour lift which might tell you where I am in all of this.

Hopefully four days of rest and relaxation will set me up for what's to come.

So sorry to hear that things have deteriorated so quickly and hoping you manage to have a really relaxing break Jane to help you with the decisions ahead. Love to you all. Carol.
So hope you get some rest Jane! My husband has deteriorated rapidly the past two months, and sometimes I don’t have time to catch my breath. He can’t find his way around either, and whenever I say something, he says “what”, and I then repeat myself. I think I am just not going to say anything anymore. I haven’t been able to nap or do anything by myself for months and months, except for when I have a wonderful caregiver in for a few hours twice a week. Rest my friend.
