I was always fascinated byt the thought of Multiple personalities....  but I have dealt with a mom that is very agrophobic at one point she would not drive in a car unless dad was at the wheel.  Because she knew she couldnt yank the wheel out of his hand.  She has improved by huge amounts over the years to good psychiatry and good medications.   though she still uses it to get her way...  I am working still on that one.

 

I can sooo understand why people who have issues they are working out themselves that choose the Psychiatric profession.

If it would help, get a textbook and do some studying. 

 

How is your novel going? That might be very good therapy for you.

They are from Good Eats on the food channel and are baked, not fried.

 

They look delicious!

When life gets as hard as it is for you, It is easy to neglect the things that make us happy. You are one of my heroes!

 

Taking care of aging parents is really tough and you have a 99 year old Grand Mother on top of it.

Double ditto here!!!  I can't imagine my taking that on longterm like Deb (altho I know if it were to become necessary I would try but probably fail miserably, except for my DH of course, I have already told him many times he will never see a 'home" as long as I have a muscle left) I also PITY any family member who might try to care for me in the future.  I have always been fiercely independent (drove my poor DH crazy when I broke my leg/ankle.  I would wait until he went outside to sneak myself in/out of my wheelchair, etc.).  Tho I actually enjoy doing things for others, that's probably how I wound up  doing the hospice care at three different times for friends/neighbors.

 I am, at best, very uncomfortable with people doing things for me, most of the time flat out hating it.  Me being forced to depend upon someone else's help?  That person would need LOTS of prayers!

You can understand where my parents are, can't you? My mom has always been the caregiver, and now Dad is having to do the caring. In some ways, they are fairly well covered - Mom has had someone coming in helping with the cleaning and yard work for a while now, and Dad has done the laundry for years (my brothers and I are willing to do whatever we can, but they live at least an hour and a half away from any of us). But with her dominant arm out of commission, Mom really can't do anything, and I know that bugs the heck out of her. (Incidentally, she has an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon on Wednesday; we're kind of in limbo until then)

I spent the last 27 hours at work, 5 of which were spent attempting to sleep and not freeze to death on the worlds most uncomfortable cot hastily erected in the ostomy supplies section of my work. 

 

 

But I got home a few minutes ago, the house smells mildly of skunk, and I am now officially on vacation. I plan to get reacquainted with the shower, deodorant and oral hygiene, then start enjoying the heck out of it.
