Caregiving: easier to forget or easier to remember?

Is it easier to forget or easier to remember?


What about family, a friend, or an acquaintance? Do we remember something else and forget to make time? Or forget the something else and remember to make time.


Care or not to care. Does choice define the quality of our natures?


One thing for sure … caregiving is EASIER said then done.


With Patti’s Multiple Sclerosis progression she actually has memory loss so I said to myself, “Self, why not pose this quandary to Patti?”


Patrick: “Patti, is it easier to forget or easier to remember?”


Patti: “Who the hell cares? I just want a cigarette!”


The give and take of caregiving can have a way of simplifying the philosophical. <grin>

  1. Patti sure has a way with words-what a great perspective-give me a cigarette!

  2. LOL, Patti's comment; she does come to the point for sure

    for me, as I get older, it is easier to forget than remember :)


  3. I believe that Patti has it more together than the rest of us! LOL  Who says that memory loss is a bad thing!

  4. Now, what was the question???  <grin>
