I talk a lot in this episode about mistakes in life and caregiving and mistakes in general. We all make mistakes and we will make mistakes and till death. This is just part of life and no one or anything will stop you from making mistakes, whether that be in life in general, or within your caregiving journey.
I don’t know about you all, but I know that when caregiving journey is said and done, I will always ask myself, certain questions like, did I do everything I could for Mama, what did I do that we should not have done things like that.
I’ve always been told that you should never do anything in haste. The decisions that you make in a haste are always the ones that you regret later on. I know when I go to buy a car. I have learned never to buy the car 1st time you look at it. I always end up regretting it. Every car bought in a haste I have regretted buying.
In our caregiving journey. I know that there are mistakes that we’ve made. I know that there are things that we regret but you’ve got to do what’s best for you at times, whether or not everybody agrees with you. You’ve got to do what you need to do how you need to do it. There may be times when you have to tell somebody to kiss her, but and they may or may not be helping you in your caregiving journey, but they think they have the right to give their opinion on what you doing how you’re doing it, where you’re doing it.
I talk about last week’s episode of this podcast. Not knowing whether or not I should of recorded data in the state that I was. I was really emotional with last week’s podcast because the poem. Don’t ask me to remember. Really got to me. Really bothered me because mom and I have such a close relationship and I know for fact that I’m losing her. I know that one of these days. Hopefully not very soon, but one of these days mom is going to be gone.
I also talk about society and the fact that society does not learn from its mistakes. Case in point. Solomon and Gomorrah. From the Bible society has not learned from its mistakes in society. Web only will never learn from its mistakes causing changes on a dime.
We also talked this week about whether or not it was a mistake to take some mamas medication away from her. Because of the agitation that she is been going through. I talk to her doctor about it. Nice light will give her this one medication back which will help with the agitation. Yes, this one particular medication has helped with the agitation, but it’s also taken some of Mama’s appetite away from her. I think. She seems to want to do nothing more than sleep now with this additional dose. Now, Mama sleeps good bit. Anyway, but I do believe that this additional dose of medication has made it the sleeping a little worse.
I talk about whether or not it would be a mistake to mention patreon, as a way to possibly make a little bit of money on the podcast wondering whether or not it’s a mistake to me been mentioned wondering if it’ll upset some people that I’m even thinking about it. So I haven’t put it out there yet. I just made one up trying to decide whether or not it’s right to do. It may even be a mistake to mention it in the podcast. It may even be a mistake to mention it here and show notes.
I guess I said all this just to say you going to make mistakes until death. We are human. No one is perfect. No one will get away without making some mistakes. Somewhere along in their life, whether that is a day-to-day thing or whether that will be in your caregiving journey you’re whether that will be in some other form. We all make mistakes. We all have to let our children at the proper time decide whether or not to drive on icy snowy wet roads. For me it’s a very hard thing to do to let Michael decide whether or not to drive on icy roads because I know what icy snowy roads can do to a car been there and done that. So the only thing I can say is that we supposed to learn from our mistakes, we are supposed to teach our children about our mistakes and hopefully they won’t make the same mistakes that we did, although they may.
At the end of each day, Make sure your loved ones know you love them know that you hear form let your kids know that you love them every day. Let your one that your caregiving for know that you are there, for them.
