My wife was writing to one of her work friends back in Virginia Beach and she was describing her life. A leader in Bible Study Fellowship, a leader in our Churches Women's Fellowship, organizing our Church Library, and working in the Library here at Azalea Trace. I commented that she was not giving herself credit for being my full time care giver!
She looked at me like I was crazy, but think of it. She cannot tell me to go to the store and buy this, because I don't drive. I cannot run errands, and if I need to go to the doctor, dentist, or anywhere else, she has to take me! Then there are my meds! If she does not monitor me, I forget to take them. Not good. Additionally, I do not know what I take, so I cannot organize my many meds. I cannot order them, keep them straight, or deal with the pharmacy or the insurance companies. As for our budget, forget it! I have not dealt with that job in years.
She constantly monitors where I am, all the time. If I stay too late at Billiards on Sunday or Wednesday night, she is checking on me. She does leave me alone for 3 hours on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. but I have so much to do on those days and I am so dedicated to accomplishing those chores, she is sure I will not wander. But if I ever do, she will never leave me alone again!
It is my opinion that my wife vastly underestimates the stress, workload, and responsibilities she has because of my LBD! But I know what she does and I appreciate her!!
