Thank You

I was thinking about the seven weeks I was caught up in Chronic Fatigue enough to almost be non-functioning. Thank goodness I was able to take care of myself, but I was wondering what happens if a caregiver gets sick???? Who takes care of them? No one wants to think about that, but someone needs to. They have to reach out for help. So see that you are someone they can count on. Adopt A Caregiver.

Adopt A Caregiver, and give the gift that lasts forever and costs nothing! They need your help. Tell them your friend Helene sent you. Bless you all.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene

Composed of information, stories, and comfort. If you know some others, please let me know.

When you find a caregiver, please look at her/him in a different light. Remember these people are suffering, hurting, wondering what else is going to happen to them.Will you be there for them?

If you Adopt A Caregiver, you  give a gift that lasts a lifetime, and costs nothing!

More and more I’m getting questions and being asked how it’s going. It’s going well. One by one, we are going to make a difference. Word of mouth is still potent.

Since I’ve had this last bout of Chronic Fatigue for the last seven weeks, I’ve done very little, but hopefully I will start feeling better and get back into calling people and having them call me.

Adopt A Caregiver is my passion, my journey, my future, and my vision to help all caregivers. Today, tomorrow, one day it will make a difference. One person can do it; with a little bit of help. Are you listening? Are you willing to Adopt A Caregiver, just look around you, and you will find one. Tell them your friend Helene sent you.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene

Chronic Fatigue

For the last three weeks all I could do was sit in my recliner. Too tired to think, to knit, to write, to care about anything. It’s been a nightmare of lost days. Time I’ve lost due to complete fatigue. The last time I had it this bad was when I had Pneumonia several years ago.

Today was the first day I’ve felt almost human. Weak as a kitten, hard to concentrate, but at least up and out of the chair for a few hours. I did get to answer some emails, I filed some papers away, and tonight I am going to wash my hair.

Imagine being a caregiver and having Chronic Fatigue!!!

Support the caregivers. Adopt A Caregiver. All it takes is an email, or a phone call. Please help those who can’t help themselves. Word of mouth is so potent, lets get this journey moving into the right directions.

Too tired to talk more, hopefully tomorrow will be a better day.

Keep love and kisses in you life. Helene

Today's Significant Event

I received the nicest compliment today. One of my friends adopted a caregiver. She stopped to tell me that they were going to lunch next week. She invited me, but I had to decline. I would love to go with them, but my week is filled. I promised the next time I would go. How nice to be stopped and told that what you are doing is a wonderful thing. Giving back to people who really need a friend. Her eyes were sparkling as she talked. Thank you so much.

Also listened to a speaker today who is a writing coach, and editor. She’s a warm wonderful person, who likes to give back in her profession. She is someone who wrote a beautiful blurb in my book, Behind The Mask. Thank you Dr. Mary.

I’ve had some bad days lately, lots of Chronic Fatigue, and Fibromyalgia; a reaction from a shot has messed up my immune system. Chronic Fatigue is unrelenting. I am exhausted all the time.  Sometimes I can hardly keep my eyes open, or my mind functioning. It’s hard to think, and hard to write.

But better days are coming, and it’s one day at a time anyway. Tomorrow my friend is giving a luncheon, and I’m looking forward to seeing her. She is one terrific lady.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene
