While I am thrilled this morning with the first snow here in Pennsylvania, another caregiver up in Alaska wakes to a different view.
from Sandra of Family C.A.R.E.
"I am so tired and overstressed right now I can barely even express it. I'm tired, but I can't keep the house warm for my dad and sleep at the same time because right now our primary heat source is a fireplace. I can't go to sleep and leave an open flame going in the fireplace, and if I let the fire burn out then the house will get down to near freezing levels by morning. This all causes a significant lack of sleep, and that lack of sleep is producing stress and disorientation like you would not believe."
Caregivingly Yours, Patrick Leer
