“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.” – Haruki Murakami

It’s been a month and a half since I updated our blog…my blog now. I have been through a lot.  I have changed.  I have had nothing to write…Nothing that would add to what this blog was intended to be.  

I am shifting my focus.

I am working on a book and focusing all my writing energy there and the rest of my energy on my nonprofit; the Young Spouse Caregiver Alliance.  I am energetically creating a community that would have supported me during the last two years.  A safe place for young spouse caregivers to visit, ask questions, vent, learn, educate and feel no judgement.  A place where caregivers feel protected and valued. 

As I move forward I defiantly do not want to lose this content as it made me who I am. I think my/our journey is one that needs to be shared.  Over the next few weeks I will be thinking of renaming this blog, or not. (Suggestions appreciated!) It will become more of a lifestyle blog geared towards young spouse caregivers and what they can do to make the most of their experience.  I will stay true to myself and continue to post personal antidotes, funny Duane stories and information about what I have learned. Those of you who are not caregivers, but friends and family of mine, I am sure you will be entertained as well! 

Thank you all for your continued love and support. 

– xoxo Victoria

  1. Amen Victoria. Some are chosen to take these journeys we never signed up for….or imagined we would ever be on. It is not a journey I would wish on anyone. Whether the journey is loosing a husband, best friend, partner in the prime of their life, or losing a child at the beginning of their life, being the ones that have to go on and face every day is a challenge you have to do every day. But we do. To keep their memory alive and to show others they too will survive. Sometimes one hour at a time.

  2. Keep the original name just add to it. This is ALS young caregivers or something to the sort. You’ll figure it out. Just keep living. You have a lot to offer to others that have or are going through the same thing. Looking forward to what you come up with.
