My 90 year old mother became 90% dependent about 1.5 years ago. She called me one Friday afternoon, I just got home from work. I had no idea my life would change so dramatically over night.

I'm not complaining at all.

I moved out of my house into the same house I grew up in. I naturally feel isolated and trapped from time-to-time. I'm single and chances of finding my Soul Mate under the present conditions is close to zero. I'm looking for someone or group that can relate. Someone to share the challenges of the day with when mom is napping. Someone who has "been there - done that".

Every morning, I ask myself, "is this the day"? The day I find my mother in her bed, permanently Resting In Peace. What am I supposed to do?

Every day is the same. Holidays, as we all understand means family, visitors, fun and enjoyment. Those days have faded away. Mom and I have a quiet understanding that we are both, simply waiting for her do die, to be free of her chronic pain. What to expect after that is completely unknown.

When I can get away, I head for the beach to fly one of my 3 stunt kites. You are welcome to join me.
