Don't know how many of you remember me but I was a member between February and October of last year.

My name is Helen and I wil be 46 next month and I am a first time mom of a 17 month old boy who is the light of my life.

I also have a 68 year old mom who is going through dementia which has progressed quite rapidly during this past year putting me into the sandwich generation. My step father is looking after her yet is having a hard time doing so. I live across town and do not drive making it impossible to be in 2 places at once.

They both worry me and at this point I am also trying to find a job as we can no longer live on one income and longer.

Life is very hectic. How is that for an intro?

Welcome back... Feel free to jump right in... Don't forget about the support forum. It can come in real handy with the parental issues...

Hugz!

 welcome backwelcome back!!  I know how hard it is w/the dementia thing.  We finally had to put my Nana in a home/hospital as she couldn't take care of herself, even with me visiting daily for a few hours.  It's hard...HUGS...

Hey Mary, nice to "see" you again. Gregory is a very curious toddler by now who is running by now. He has grown so quickly
