"Nancy Where Are You?"

My friend ‘Nancy’, not her real name; I changed it in my book, Behind The Mask, has changed jobs and states, and I don’t know how to get in touch with her. So ‘Nancy’ if you are reading this, send me your new email address. I miss talking to you.

Doors are opening, word of mouth is spreading and Adopt A Caregiver is becoming more of a reality than a distant vision.

The future of every community can change how caregivers are treated. Every community has caregivers, be they from Alzheimer’s Disease stroke, heart attack, or MS. We hear things, we know people and we can help. All it takes is an email, a phone call, be a friend, listen, learn, help.

I read something the other day that said something like, being angry is wasting time on life. Angry doesn’t help. Depression doesn’t help. We have to learn to help ourselves. We have to cope, we have to be there. And it’s hard to do it alone. We all need support of families, and friends.  My support system was a secret journal that I wrote on my computer. No one knew about it. I think it saved my sanity.

Thank you to all those who are helping. Lisa, Linda, Sue, Gary, Steve, and so many others, too many to name. You know who you are. Thank you.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene
