November is National Caregivers Awareness Month
Sending a big thank you to all the caregivers working hard to care for our beloved family members. I would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to my aunt Peg for caring for my ninety-two year old grandma! My grandmother still lives in the home my grandfather built for her over fifty years ago all of this is directly attributed to my aunts hard work and dedication.
Me and my grandma before my pain was managed note the smile on my face shows pain.
We must remember no human or animal should suffer from horrific pain, this is not a quality life. I went over one year without having my pain managed not understanding that the pain was not going to go away like when we break our leg or something. Pain is a signal to say something is wrong and we need to get help I highly suggest reaching out and doing your homework when helping a loved one navigate pain management. Before my pain was managed I refused to eat much, suffered from insomnia as the pain would wake me up I found myself living a life in a deep blur this is not healthy.
GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!
