Jennie,

Hope you are doing better. You need to take care of your own health or you can not be the Caregiver that you would like to be. Please ask other family members, or friends to come which will allow you to get out and re-group on your role as Caregiver.

Do not feel guillty when you take a break.

Judi

Hi Yes, I am OK and hanging in there. Hubby is now 2 yrs post stroke and still cannot talk, read, write. Yikes.

I also had to take him off Kepra seizure med due to going into hugh rages. Now I am waiting for a physc appt for him to get some
anger meds evidently, citrampam isnt doing the trick.

Always something - would love to hear from you, hang in there and thanks for checking!!
