please do not talk rubish.
You do help others by your determination, and your flashes of humour.
It helps others to know that even with your shop you are still able to be a good carer.
You carry a heavy load
Dear bel,whatever you share with TP.and whatever responses you recieve,are all part and parcel of being a member or guest on TP.You are not obliged to give or take advice.Therefore to take advice and have none to give doesn,t make you any the less a member of TP.We listen and respond accordingly as posters and recievers of replies to posts.By no means must you feel that you "feel sorry for yourself".We all do that.several times a day! This is why T.P is here.(in my view anyway)love elainex
I also admire the way you can run a shop and care for Bob so well. You do help others by your determination to keep on keeping on under stressful circumstances. Bel, you are admired very much on TP and Bob is very lucky to have you in his corner. Take Care. Taffy.
As the others have said, I come to TP most days and reading the posts you and other members send, helps us all out here. knowing we are not alone in the world we now find ourselves in is comforting.
Please keep posting, this Forum is a lovely place to be when there seems no-one else understands, we are learning from each other, we all need some outlet when we are faced with the daily problems that arise, when looking after a loved one with AZ.
Bel you make me smile, you have a lovely way about you, and i just look forward to reading your posts you help me alot by just telling us all about your and bobs day, I also am keeping our business running and appreciate how tiring doing boyh jobs is but you are an inspiration. I have just let trev go for a weeks respite,knew i was at breaking point, and trev who has refused any help or day care seems to be fairly happy so perhaps he needed a holiday from me,just keep on posting thanks Pam
So many of your posts have brought me pleasure - and believe me - we on TP need pleasure when we can find it!!
I love the posts about your grandchildren, about the clever things Bob had made or created, about your life in the shop, and all the other things you mention.
Had to smile at Norman telling you that you were "talking rubbish" and Cate telling you to "behave yourself"! You see, TPers say it as they see it! No "soft soap" here! But I have to agree with them - they are right.
Sometimes your posts are about how sad you are and how hard it is. We need to hear that these things are true for others on TP too, not just for ourselves. I for one would find it very hard if every one always posted about how well they were doing and how successfully they were coping. It would make me feel a real "eejit"!
Please keep on doing what you do so well - being your own lovely self.
All the others have said it - we think you are a STAR (I wish there was a smilie to cover that!!).
Please keep posting - you help us all just by sharing. By doing just what you do helps us to put our own situation into perspective. God Bless You - you are just wonderful. The only sad thing is we cannot or do not meet face to face.
