yeah, too bad it's my fucking life.
nursing home costs $130 a day, can you believe that shit?
he's been in therapy for the last few weeks, and he'll be going to a nursing home for 20 days (because that's all medicare will cover). He's about the same as he was the week after he woke up. He's angry all the time and wants to escape from his bed. The bleed in his brain started in the speech/learning center of the brain, so he is unable to understand or communicate with us (he clearly is trying to say something but it never makes any sense). We had hoped that he'd stay in rehab longer than this, but he spends most of the night awake and most of the daytime asleep so they can never do proper therapy.
It kills me that we don't seem to have a way to take proper care of him. He'll stay in a nursing home for 20 days, but after that who knows how he's going to be taken care of. We can't afford homecare and we can't afford a nursing home.
my personal problems seem very small by comparison, but they're still there, all the typical anon ronery-ness. just be glad you're not me. as much as it hurts to be lonely, there are things that hurt a lot more.
