I just looked at my calendar and realized that this Saturday is the anniversary of being diagnosed in 2014. It hasn't been great but when I realize how much worse it could have been... So all in all, so far, I'm doing pretty good and am so happy for that.
The main thing I have learned is to stay away from stress. That affects me worse than anything else. Unfortunately, so many things in life do stress me. (After all, I do have two disabled sons.) But I have tried to embrace THEIR strengths which helps offset my stress with them. My mom has been in a nursing home for about two months (which that in itself, is a stressor) and dealing with her house and stuff... !!!
Now I have done what I can with my mom's stuff, I have taken a big step back. My sister is the POA and trustee so it's out of my hands, so my stress from that is (virtually) gone.
Go away all stress!!!
