Oh, wow. You have me crying now. This reminds me of my mom, whom I miss even now after 17 years of her being gone. If I have the capability to love, it was all given to her. And yes, she saved me from myself many times. I could do no harm to myself because it would have hurt her more. You HAVE to put together a book with all these lovely things you write. :) — Rebecca
Interesting article. I’d be more likely to want to use herbal remedies than any “pills” the medical world wants to push on people. The symptoms from the drugs always seem worse that what the person was suffering from in the first place.
What a great story, and sad. I’ve never had to deal with this problem with elderly parents, but I’m currently reading a novel about this called “The Goddess of Undo.” It’s funny and tragic at the same time. Well done.
