I can cope :)

This last month has again been full of lows and highs. My Mum who is my Dad's carer was taken ill and my Dad had to go into emergency respite care. He was diagnosed with Alzheimer's last November and then my Mum was taken into hospital. She's now at  home but has carers twice a day to enable her to return to how she was before she was taken ill. My parents are both 88 and have been together for 66 years. My Doctor has given me some very sound advice "do not think about the what if's" I was getting so stressed out and what with my slow healing fractured left foot I was beginning to think I can't cope. But I can. I've reduced my hours at work for the time being until decisions are made and my foot has healed.

On the writing front I've had some amazing highs I won Flash rounds 8 and 11 on The Angry Hourglass. Interior Decorating  http://t.co/KZEw7ALR9k and The Weight  http://t.co/2wtCJBoan7 . also on 101 Fiction Alcohol was chosen  http://t.co/32TY5zc66a

I'm trying to take each day as it comes and live in the present. Not easy but I'm practising :)
