There are 5.4 million people who have Alzheimer's. It cost 183 billion dollars in annual costs. Alz's is the 6th leading cause of death.
To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence... 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.
1 John 4: 9-10

    Post Caregiver Stress Syndrome

    I looked online to see if there was a post Caregiver Stress Syndrome and I found this Caregiver Stress Syndrome. I did not find a label for post caregiving. 
    Caregiver Stress Syndrome is a term used to describe the physiological and psychological changes experienced as the result of chronic stress due to ongoing caregiving activities.

    Caregiver Stress Syndrome are actual physiological, psychological and emotional symptoms that can result from the ongoing emotional strain of caregiving for a loved one, or attending to the all of the needs of a child or dependent adult.

    Fortunately the impact of care giving on the caregiver is starting to be recognized. Physicians (and family members) are being encouraged to identify those at risk for Caregiver Stress Syndrome, so they can get some help and some respite care.
    A friend of mine lost her mom this past week after caring for her the last few years. I saw her at Walmart the other night and she was telling me how it felt to be there . I had the same feelings when mom died and many more.   The fact that I  did not have to hurry home.  I was free to do what I wanted and go where I wanted and stay as long as I wanted but it was not right. It was scary. Driving even scared me. I was out of place . Walmart was so big and  so much space. There was to many people. The roads have to many cars. And going back to work was awful. I went back to the full-time job I gave up to care for mom and I could not do it. I was over whelmed. Talking to my friend made me realize I was not the only one that felt this way.After your love one is gone you have to start all over. The world did not stop and wait on you to return. It moved on and you have to catch up. For years you stay at home in your own very small world caring for someone day in and day out. If you do get away you run to do errands just thinking about the time and how you have to get back. That is all you focus on. Getting what needs to be done fast . Now you have all this time and freedom but do not know what to do with it. If you are a caregiver get help. Tell everyone you know that you need help.We all need help.
    I am better now. I have a job I love. And as always family and friends that love and care for me. It took awhile to get out of the hole but I am almost there. Just know you are not the only one . Ask for help. Pre, During and Post Caregiver. And Always Pray.
