just so you know I am still here...

...well almost!

My parents are quite elderly and my father is very fragile at the moment and experiencing difficulties which are taking up my time and emotional energy. This happens to all of us including, I know, many who comment here.

Priorities don't become an issue - helping and supporting takes over. There is no question. But perhaps there should be.

We all need to look after ourselves to be strong enough to look after another.

So look after yourselves my friends. Be strong.

It can be hard being a "kind Dom" sometimes!

More soon...

I wondered! ;-p

Teasing aside, I've been there, done that, burned the t-shirt. It's draining and can really take a toll on a person but then again, these are our parents. There really is no question, is there?

~Sending positive thoughts and warm wishes~

I'm sorry. It is awful when the realities if life get in the way of living. I hope despite the difficulties of it all you are able to spend some quality time with you parents still.

Good to hear from you. Take care.
