As some of you know, my mother has advanced Alzheimer’s.  She has lived in a nursing home for over a year now.  I thought that she would have headed on out by now…but she is alive and continues to be alive.  At this point, I think she is going to live forever, in this strange dream of a place that she resides in.

My interaction with her has changed pretty dramatically over the last handful of months.  Rather than edgy and mean or having intense scary hallucinations, she has been more child like….and sweet.  I can imagine her as a young girl now…before she became the angry adult she turned into…and I can see this sweet, fun kid who was curious  and mischievous.  She has become surprisingly delightful.  I have conversations with her that feel warm and fuzzy.  What a surprise!  And what a gift~

I am not saying that every interaction with her is fun….much of the time it is pretty strange and sometimes it still has pretty sharp edges…but, I love that she has this young part of herself that I get to connect with.  I wrap it around me like a cozy blanket.  And when the conversations get sharp or freaky….I remember this other aspect of her and I feel a little less conflicted.

There are so many challenges for those of us dealing with this.  Alzheimer’s is a marathon.  A very long marathon.  We need to make sure that we hydrate.  That we have good running shoes and comfortable clothes on.  We need our people standing along the road and maybe even running along side of us…supporting us.  Reminding us that we are okay…that everything is okay.

I have many clients who are in the middle of all of this.  It is messy.  It is exhausting.  It is sad.  It is sometimes charming and sweet.  I hope you have good support, a good sense of humor and lots of little ways that you can give yourself self care~  Your not in this alone…there are many of us out here~

That’s it for now.

Have a lovely rest of your day~~~

Recently, one of my favorite shirts had to go.  I wasn’t ready for its demise.  Dark blue, nice and roomy…with a fun and lighthearted image on the front.

You know the one?  It’s got the women dancing on the front…each one a different color?

Yep. That’s the one.

It was the shirt that I wore when I felt really sick.  I used to think “I feel like shit but at least I have dancing women on my chest and they are having a good time!”  This image would bring me great comfort.  (more…)

It has been  crazy over here.

Absolutely crazy!

Cuz I have a new drug.

And like any other drug when used to the extent that I am using it… can make one feel hung over.  And irritable. Irritable if I do it too much…irritable if I don’t.  I am also barely noticing that things are falling to the wayside.  Or is that whey side?  I feel very anti social and I just want to be left alone…thank you very much!  I forget to eat and I just can’t be bothered makin any one else food…cuz really who cares?  And I haven’t left the house in days.  I am also wearing the same jammies and underwear that I was in this last weekend.  I think.  I am not sure.  The details are kind of blurry.

As some of you know who read this blog…I have been having a dandy time with writers block.  But, since I don’t really consider myself a writer…even my phone message says “Hi!  This is Lynne Morrell, EFT Practitioner and Personal Life Coach!…it does not say “Hi!  This is Lynne Morrell, EFT Practitioner, Personal Life Coach and Writer!… I have decided that I am just having “Pretend Writer’s Block!”  Or PWB as I like to refer to it while staring at my blank computer screen.

Each morning. I dutifully put in my little wordpress secret code to pull up the innards of my website.  I look to see if anyone has commented on any of my posts…which no one has because I have PWB.  Then I click the button that brings me here.


And I stare. (more…)

So, my faithful readers…I begin this week by plunging into writing a 6 word clump on shopping for a particular item.

I know you know what I am talkin about.

And since I have been postponing this whole event for a few years now (last year I wore shorts and an old tee shirt into the pool)!

…this is the year.






A frickin bathing suit!!!!! (more…)


Today’s quote has been stolen from my fabulous friend Kerry.  She had posted this on her facebook page and I just had to steal it :)

Thanks Kerry!

I love this cuz it is optimistic….with the assumption that we all have a photographic memory 😉

Have a memorable day!
