I Feel Like I'm Losing My Grandchildren
I have three grandchildren, ages 5, 10 and 11. I love them with all of my heart.
When the older two grandchildren were younger, we used to go to the movies, go shopping and go swimming, etc. They would spend the night at my house. I spent too much money on them at Christmas and Easter and inbetween.
About 5 years ago I became sick with an auto-immune disease. I have lost most of my energy. I have spoken with my doctor, and I should be happy that I feel as good as I do.
I'm taking steroids. I feel like I used to be a fun, pretty grandmother, and now I'm just a grandmother who can't do much anymore.
My granddaughters don't ask to spend the night over here anymore, etc. I feel like I'm losing them because I can't keep up with them like I used to.
Has anyone experienced a similar situation?
