I always post about how much fun we are having and all the visitors we have. The boats rides we go out on, the fish we catch…I never post about the shit days, well today was one of those. From the second Duane woke up it was bad.
I moved his feet too fast.
His coffee was too hot.
Even though I asked to floss and brush his teeth 3 times, he ignored me and then told me that a “normal person” brushes their teeth 2 times a day and I need to just start brushing his teeth.
His shake was too thick and I tried to make him drink it too quick.
I moved too fast when I was putting on his shirt.
I never help him, I just stare at him and don’t help.
I parked the scooter too close to the car.
I am always doing two things at once and never focus on him.
I didn’t eat lunch with him – I was feeding him and wanted to focus on him.
I was sad when he made fun of me for not being able to put my new spinning bike together.
This takes us to 2pm…The day didn’t get better and this was no where near a bad day.
But today sucked. ALS sucks. What ALS does to the body sucks. It’s the worse disease there is. People with ALS keep 100% of their mind their body just stops working.
