"Also, the definition of sin is just missing the mark. It means we made a mistake. We have this concept of sin in our culture like it is some horrible soul crushing thing that is looked at with such trepidation - and the definition of it…"

I have been a caregiver for many years, so I guess I now define myself that way and thus don't have much more to say other than I am a writer. My book "The Blood Moon Sealed My Fate" is the first book in a trilogy. The second book will be coming out soon. The trilogy (which it seems may now turn into a series) tells the fictionalized story from abuse to recovery of one person I was a caregiver for after he asked me to tell the story once he passed away - so I guess I'm also a writer. I'm also a wife, an aunt, and once was a daughter but now I am an orphan.
About my Loss:
My greatest losses have been my mother, my father, my step-mother-in-law, and most recently in January (two months ago) the best and most loyal friend I ever had. Over the years of caregiving though, I've lost several other people. I guess I'm a little numb more than grieving at this point. When the numbness goes away, that's when I'm really going to feel it.

I've repeatedly been a caregiver but I'm not sure if that is what you mean by service provider.

I was just finishing typing a long entry about how upset I am about my laptop dying and the potential loss of all of my files, including all of my mom's photos and many other important things, when my browser crashed and I lost my draft. Technology is out to get me this weekend. I give up.See More

The brain is an amazing thing. I have known cases where it just felt like there was no way the patient could hear, but when they recovered it was clear that they did hear.
I ALWAYS proceed with the confidence that the patient can hear what…"

Ok that´s odd. I have 3 fractured ribs. My drs and I had a hard time to grap the motive, a simple fall from my own height for a medicine peak of low blood pressure. What is even more amazing is how the people around us react when we don´t know what´s wrong but know there is suffering and pain. You know the type....the types of people who think she must be exagerating, or pitiful for a second or regretting their own attitude. What does it say about them? I think that´s why we feel like wild…See More
