Nobody adopted me

Where were you when I had no one to talk to, when I needed to vent, when I needed a shoulder to cry on?

Where were you when I tried to smile and couldn’t?

Where were you when I was too depressed to function?

I needed you but you were off with friends and your clubs, too immersed in your activities to think of mine.

I never asked you to grocery shop, or baby sit so I could get out, I never called you or bothered you. I never wanted to bother anyone.

Where were you when I needed you and everyone else deserted us?

This is how caregivers feel.

That is what I want to change, and why I want everyone to adopt a caregiver.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene
