Looking after parents - a sorry saga

I helped my sister look after my mum after my dad passed away. The only way I could cope during my dad's illness was by going out for half an hour every day walking or jogging (slowly) Forget the food, do a bit of exercise. Won't solve your problems but it is a way of getting time for yourself and calming down after conversations with hospitals who seem incapable of organising communication

all the best

  • SO true.

    Its often so hard to get out the door but so worth it when we do.

  • walking is my therapy also 😍 Hope things pick up for you soon

  • Hi Paterson,

    I also find walking to be really enjoyable, and gives plenty of time for thinking, contemplating and enjoying scenery too.

    I hope your weekend is going well and that you have a good week ahead.

    Lowcal :-)

  • Life definitely isn't easy paterson and a good walk helps put me in a better, calmer mood too.

    Not to detract from the problems you have had, did you also mean this post as a response to Jenever who is going through a lot of stress and also posted about 'a sorry saga' ...

    I hope you have a good week 🙂
