I know, I know. I’ve been a bad little Kimmi and I haven’t been blogging! Oh the shame! Well right now, I’m making a commitment. I’m blogging at least 3 times a week while I am doing my 6 week challenge (in Week 3).
So, about today. I started with an email from THE Mr. Steve Kamb in response to the email I sent him last week. I’ll admit it, I freaked the eff out. Of course I immediately responded back. That was my high. I was bouncing around.
The low was really low. My dad has dementia caused by his alcoholism. Alcohol blocks B vitamins from being absorbed into the body. B vitamins run your brain and nerves. No B vitamins= messed up brain and nerves. For almost 4 years now I have been my father’s legal guardian. He lives in a very nice nursing home.
I had to speak to the Social Worker, Head of Nursing, and Executive Director about my father today because his violence has been escalating. In fact, while we were talking, he was at the local psych ward while they played with his meds to see if that would help. If he continues to be violent, then he will have to be moved to another facility. I don’t want that to happen, but he cannot hit other people whenever!
I left the nursing home feeling like crap and almost stopped 3 or 4 times to get something to eat. Yes, I was hungry, but my lunch was waiting for me at work. I made it safely to work with no emotional eating! I still feel crappy whenever I think about it, so I’m choosing that to think about it anymore. 🙂
