    Hi, y'all! Yes, I'm from the South. I lost my mom in Dec. 2019. I was her caregiver for 31 yrs., some of that while I was working a f/t job. Now, it's like; she's gone, now what do I do? It's a huge adjustment.

    It is a huge adjustment. you feel like you are numb then you realize you spent all your free time caring for your loved one and now you don't know what to do with yourself
     
  3. God Bless You, what a Blessing you were for your Dear Mother, lifting you in prayer.
    I was caregiver for my husband 24 years of PD, totally took care of him his last nine years, it was like living two lives, would do it all again if need be for him in a heartbeat. It will be five years in November. I know he is in Heaven, I am also in the South, after being caregiver many years am still finding it difficult in acquiring friends and adjusting to my now life, been here in SC four years feel like am in a maize when I get out. God will oversee our direction and I know there is things HE has ahead of us to accomplish. Blessings.
