Everyone deals with stress…at work, home and in our personal lives. Many people get so wound up with stress that they neglect the healthy things that should be done for themselves every day. Sleep, the right foods, and exercise are especially important. While I’ve never had a problem in these areas (especially eating), I hope these ideas will help at least one of you.
Feel free to comment on what makes you stressed, and how you dealt with it!!
Repetitive behavior is something that Alex does daily. More especially with numbers and phrases…almost to the point of getting angry if he thinks we don’t hear him. We have tried, and still trying to break this cycle. It does get irritating and monotonous, but we never want to start tuning him out. He does show a lot of social skills and independence in some areas, so we don’t want to discourage that, either.

An incredible and inspiring young man. He is a credit to his family and village! If there is anything to take away from this, it’s that you should never hold back or give up on helping your fellow man, no matter how big or small you can contribute.
Also, I hope this act of love will be a wake-up call to those who can reach out to under-developed areas…such as musician Akon has done, and help where they can.
End of life is something no one likes to discuss, and don’t usually plan for until they have no alternative. It is certain, at least to me, that you can’t really plan too far ahead, because the details of the hospice care can vary with situation.
