Bummed OUT

Its been a hard week. The work gossip, extremely family sick, and old people getting older. One of my residents fell and broke her hip and has had a hard time mentally. Dementia has kicked in ( could be dehydration or the pain meds) either way today was hard seeing her. She still had her wit but she was really somber. She kept telling us how we don’t even know how glad she is we came to visit her. We played games and took her for a walk (to the chapel so she could do her little Catholic things). She was just depressed and it made me really sad. I have been to Seattle 5 times this past week to visit her and I am sure I’ll be there much more. All you praying people, please pray for “V”. She needs it 😦

I am a conservative, slightly old-fashioned crazy girl. I love to read, write, sew, scrapbook, cook, bake, do crafts, enjoy nature, take my car off-roading, ride my bike, and just stay busy. I sometimes say I want a lazy day BUT I hate not having anything to do which means I frequently stretch myself too thin. I am the Life Enrichment Director at an assisted living facility. I love being around the elderly population. They are such amazing people who have so much to offer and teach. I also love the little guys too... I love being around kids, especially my nieces and nephews! In December of 2019 I was diagnosed with a Chiari Malformation that quite literally may have been a life changing diagnosis. I went from feeling like I was crazy. To maybe having answers.
