8 years is a great success. You want to praise yourself every day for this big achievement. Your children were so young, I think, and how hard that must have been. At least mine are grown and on their own.
Well, my 2 year anniversary was today at about 9 am, the moment when I crossed over from one divide to another. I adamantly refused to go to the hospital and was in fierce denial pushing myself to extremes physically right from the start. I soon started the twice daily meditation which I credit with giving me these relatively good 2 years. Maybe I'll do extra meditation today in deep gratitude.
Hope your Christmas day is one of celebration of your triumph.
Yes they were young. My daughter was 5 1/2 months old, my youngest son was 22 months old, my middle son was 7, & my oldest was 13 at the time. But as I said, I Thank God for allowing me to be here to wacth them grow up. Alberta

It gets better??? I am now at 2 years and am still miserably tired. My wonderful dear thoughtful hubby had a bad left side stroke in mid Oct. We may need to find other living accommodations.. a nightmare thought. He came home from rehab hosp for a few hours Christmas Eve and Christmas day. It is hard to anticipate 2013 with optimism.

True, that fatigue factor returns. But is it quite as bad? As often? For myself I can say No to both questions. The days can vary, to be sure, but I know good days will follow the bad.
So sorry about your husband. Don't know the extent of the disability but we can make remarkable improvement with will and determination. Perhaps with some outside help you need not make a drastic move, at least not right away. With a strong spirit and strong will working for you we wish you the very best.
We try to be as supportive as possible.
