After our Saturday broadcast, I usually receive a lot of messages, and this one really tugged at my heart. John and I recently discussed this poem written by Theresa Loder about her life as caregiver. 

I felt you would find it as meaningful as I did.

Jesus family this Christmas, give them six explanation see chickens and camping. Hope you know that he knows he is the place of the graciously reversed CD resilient go out to hope caregiver.com see more about that aggressive explicitly because I have it loaded onto all the.com download else to do but I will do the best I can. If I only had someone in my life. Someone who I can count on to help me with things like that. Oh that would be huge and I don't have anything else going on. As I was over there, but I forgot about the Joseph Gilbert give me so you will talk about that after first but right now I got a member of a lot of Facebook groups for caregivers are just like to see the pulse of what's your take the pulse of what's going on right right people.

Well, I mean if you could do this, you probably should be involved in the community in some sort of nonzero capacity, but I also get a lot of messaging provide show after after the show comes on on Saturday and we hear on over 200 stations are usually get messaging coming in from different folks struggling with various things but something I got something here just in the other direction, but you can go right now I don't know why I didn't get call and I am very moved by that because well I got I got one guy that says I should've never been about to give him credit give credit to because he didn't really earn credit, but this particular lady sent me a point that she had written and for what reason it just stuck out to me and she obviously writes several, but something about this really I don't know just just just just clicked with me and so I thought I would read it to you today and then let you respond to it. However, I love poetry and I write a lot myself, but it's it's this is is called I need to buy a lady and I told Rita today and I'm set it to make sure she has it.

Teresa Lowder hello DER, she's a character and it's called I need to write this to you. I need to wash my hair and take a shower, but here I sit enjoying this quiet hour. I need to put up meds and tidy up the room but I cherish this time. Just be me. There'll be plenty to do very soon. Right now I float in this peaceful place. My mind is brought me to hard to let go there so much. I really need to do my mind.

Cecil's back and forth of insulin shots. I need to give morning meds and vitamin probiotics and other stuff we need to live soon. My hubby will be up and need to start his day with me assisting him in each and every way, making sure he doesn't fall while walking to his chair sitting all the pillows before he sits down there making oatmeal and a nice hot cup of coffee, maybe a bottle of water in case he starts coughing. Check the swelling in his ankles. Every morning there swelling. I consider that a warning is much as I'd love to stay and chat. Now I must go get the important things done before my energy gets low, but I love to float this peaceful place.

My mind brings me to see so back and forth so much yet to do reseller and I thought wow she really captured it, absolutely. And there is a wonderful message there. There's a couple of there's a couple of things you know we we can we can get caught up in the main body of this is talking about practical things that need to be done, which we are met with Stephanie earlier now that people get caught up in the cycle. What we do when we do not mom or dad or whatever.

You know how we how we function and that somehow we found what ends up happening a lot.

As you know, shuffle them off into some some facility or something like that where it work gets done but the soul is somehow lost and in all of this and all of the emotions I is on the head is such a that is such an amazing statement of what you say to get the work gets done but the work gets done, but somehow the soul gets lost in all of this and and that's you know I talked to Stephanie for another hour but yeah like we we we do. The body of that phone. There's there's a lot of talking about the step one step to step three that goes on but initially were kind of clued in to what the not mostly what is being said in the text, but what is important here and that is the the ability to really appreciate a little bit of stillness and we talk about that an awful lot. If you have to make time for that and you picture so many caregivers of that myself, where we sometimes we just sit there would close her eyes. We just take a deep breath and we just take a moment just to just just to grab our thoughts as best as we can.

We know all the things we need to do and and sometimes unlike the rest of you just want to pull the covers over my head and say I just can't do it right now and and and as I as I am struggling with that and and I see somebody write this out so beautiful.

She knows all the things having a look at all the list of things that she has to do, that goes on with her husband's life. Nearly obviously he's diabetic and he has so many things going on in his life. She just taken a moment to center herself because she knows this list is waiting for, but she just wants to sit there, just from and I think that for us as caregivers is important conversation to have with ourselves can we just take it we just take a moment this is to take a deep breath.

You know say that I was somehow okay I absolutely doubt I could go to the academic seven Mike oh yeah good meter good. You know absolutely good rhyme structure and everything but that's not over here for that supposed to be invisible, which coincidentally is a lot of what caregivers end up doing like the soul part gets to be a little bit invisible when were dealing with everything about medications or were having to bail somebody out of jail because addiction took over or something like that when it's if you can be really rough and you know the next step we rejoice. We talk a lot about eight week sometimes you don't have to worry about the next 14 steps you sent you the next right thing and that is absolutely true. Sometimes you just have to do the next right thing but again sometimes the next right thing is just enjoying that one little moment of it.

Nice deep breath where nobody saying anything there.

There's nothing here and after these 12 seconds we can move on to what the next next right thing that the first time I read this, maybe think of stopping by Woods on a snowy evening.

The Robert Frost and whose woods these are I think I know his houses in the village so any any talks but just the points he just wanted to stay there for just a moment just reflect what he said that I got ago I got miles to go before sleep and that's what this made me think of and when she said making oatmeal and a nice hot cup of coffee making a maybe a bottle of water in case he starts coughing. Checking the swelling in his ankles every morning. If there swelling.

I consider that a warning is much as I'd love to stay in chat. Now I must go.

She knows what's waiting ahead of you know I have miles to go before I sleep, but she wanted take a moment just as you read that point but Frost CELEBRATES IT. I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S I DON'T KNOW IT BY HEART BECAUSE I KNOW A LOT OF POEMS BY HEART, BUT NOT LISTED THINK IN A MOMENT HE JUST HE JUST WANTED TO BASK IN THE MOMENT AND SHE SHE DOES AND THEN SHE SEES ALL THE LITANY OF THINGS SHE MUST DO AND IT'S SO DETAILED YOU KNOW, CHECKING THE ANKLES. YOU KNOW THEY START COUGHING ABOUT IT. IT'S ALL VERY BEAUTIFUL.

YOU NOW AND AND SO I THOUGHT YOU AND I WANT TO ENCOURAGE EVERY CAREGIVER EVERY CAREGIVER THAT THAT THIS IS IN US ALL MAY NOT BE IN POETRY. MAYBE IT'S SOMETHING ELSE, BUT IT'S IN US ALL THAT IT NEEDS TO COME OUT, PLEASE LET IT COME OUT. THIS IS THIS IS WHAT I WOULD. I WOULD, I WOULD HUMBLY PUT FORTH THAT WRITING THIS POEM IS ONE OF THOSE THINGS IN WHICH SHE CAN TAKE OF THEM A BIT OF JOY AND TAKE A LITTLE BIT OF THIS THIS WAS WRITING THIS POEM WISE HER DEEP BREATH. NOW WHERE IT IS TO GIVE OTHERS A CHANCE TO DO THE SAME RIGHT RIGHT AWAY. SHE DIDN'T WRITE THIS IN A VACUUM NOW BECAUSE WE NOTED OUT HERE AND IT'S IT IT'S BEING PUT OUT TO THIS AUDIENCE BACKING PETER RIGHT NOW WELL BUT BUT IT'S IT'S JUST REVIVING THE FAR SIDE, PUSHING A VACUUM DATAPATH IN THE FOREST AND ALL THE TREES WERE GET RID ATTACKER BECAUSE NATURE ABHORS A VACUUM. VACUUM THAT JUST GAVE IT NO IT IT IT PUTS SLEEP AS WE PUT THIS POND OUT THERE NOW AND THESE THOUGHTS FROM A CAREGIVER, AND IN ITS ALSO NOW HER THOUGHTS WILL BE WITH WHOEVER LISTENS THIS AND YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU PUT OUT THERE, IT'S OUT THERE AND YOU NEVER KNOW WHO'S GOING TO BE AFFECTED BY THIS AND I I FEEL LIKE CAREGIVERS NEED TO BE DESERVED TO BE AFFIRMED IN WHATEVER CREATIVE WAY THEY CHOOSE TO EXPRESS THEIR CHALLENGES HEART ACHE HEARTS. WHATEVER. JUST PLEASE DO IT AND THINK THAT BECAUSE WE LIKE POETRY DOESN'T MEAN THAT THAT NEEDS TO BE WHAT IT IS, IT CAN BE COACHING KIDS SOCCER TEAM WHATEVER WHATEVER SORT OF THING BRINGS YOU JOY THAT DOESN'T HAVE TO EVEN BE PRODUCTIVE. IT CAN JUST BE SOMETHING ARE DESIGNED TO BENEFIT ANYBODY BUT YOU. AT THAT POINT AND WE TALK ABOUT GUILT A LOT LIKE YOU, I HAVE THE RIGHT PEOPLE, BUT YOU ARE RIGHT FOR YOURSELF. THAT'S HOW IT HELPS OTHER PEOPLE. IF YOU DON'T DON'T WRITE THINGS FOR OTHER PEOPLE ASKED. I'M ON I KNOW THAT THAT THAT STEPHANIE EARLIER WROTE HER STUFF WITH A LOT OF OTHER PEOPLE IN MIND, BUT I'M SURE IT WAS FOR HER.

MOSTLY SHE WANTED TO WRITE A BOOK, AND WHETHER NOT ANYBODY READ IT IS YOU KNOW IT IT MATTERS, BUT IT IT'S YOU SHE WAS CAN WRITE IT IF NOBODY ELSE WAS CAN READ IT ANYWAY WILL AND THAT'S THAT'S THE MARK OF OF GOOD WRITING AND GOOD ART A GOOD ANYTHING IS THAT IS THIS AUTHENTIC TO WHO I AM AND THIS WAS CORRECT. HER BOOK WAS AUTHENTIC TO HER 25 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE AND SAID I'M GOING TO ENCAPSULATE EVERYTHING I'VE DONE AND MAKE IT COHESIVE AND CONCISE FOR FOLKS TO BE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND BECAUSE I CAN'T JUST I'M LIMITED ONE ON ONE. IN PRACTICE, BUT IF I DO THIS BOOK THAT I CAN REACH A LOT OF PEOPLE WITH THIS MESSAGE AND OUT BUT AT THE SAME TIME. IT'S GOTTA BE AUTHENTIC TO HER. THIS IS HER EXPERIENCES, HER JOURNEY SHE HAS TO OWN IT AND AND I WOULD SUGGEST TO ANY MY FELLOW CAREGIVERS IF YOU'RE DOING SOMETHING TO EXPRESS WHAT'S GOING ON YOUR HEART.

LET IT BE AUTHENTIC TO WHO YOU ARE, DON'T DO IT FOR COMMERCIAL APPLAUSE OR OR REWARD OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. IF THAT COMES THAT'S GREAT THAT'S GREAT, BUT LITTLE HEADACHE YOU HAVE ANY OR HAVE A HIGHER CHANCE OF THAT. IF YOU'RE NOT PAYING ATTENTION TO IT, AT LEAST FOR THE PURPOSES, WHAT YOU DOING YET WHEN YOU'RE DOING EDITING WHEN YOU'RE DOING WHATEVER YOU HAVE TO PAY ATTENTION OUTSOURCING BUT IF YOU'RE RIGHT, THE YOUR YOUR PRIMARY GOAL WHEN YOU'RE DOING SOMETHING LIKE THAT SHOULD BE BECAUSE IT'S THE RIGHT THING TO DO NOT BECAUSE SOMETHING ELSE TOLD YOU TO SOMETHING LIKE THAT SAVING WITH ART. DON'T TRY TO TO PAINT LIKE SOMEONE ELSE OR DO WHATEVER MAKE SURE THE SUMMIT WAS TOBIAS WHO CARES JUST PAINT JUST PAINT IN AND OUR FRIEND GARY CHAPMAN LONG-TERM SINGER-SONGWRITER NUMEROUS AWARDS AND HE GAVE THAT PIECE OF ADVICE ON THE SHOW. ONE TIME HE SAID FOR SONGWRITERS. HE SAID JUST RIGHT. DON'T TRY TO WRITE A HIT SONG JUST RIGHT JUST RIGHT NOW IS GET OUT AND THAT'S A MISTAKE. I THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE SAY WELL IT'S NOT GOOD.

THAT WAS READ WHAT YOU READ, YOU READ HOW YOU ENJOYED. LET IT BE TRUE TO WHO YOU ARE, YOU KNOW, EVERY TIME I SIT OUT OF THE PIANO WILL NOT RECORDING SOMETHING YOU KNOW I'M PLAYING FOR MYSELF I'M PLAYING TO TO WORK OUT THE KINKS OF MY OWN SOUL. YOU DO THAT AS WELL AT THE PIANO HOME ABSOLUTELY ONLINE, IT'S ME. I HAVE TO WORK NOW MAKE AN ALBUM EVERY COMPASS IS YOU KNOW AND AND AND GRACIE. WHEN SHE SINGS SHE'S NOT CUTTING A RECORD EVERY TIME SHE THINKS SHE SINGS BECAUSE THAT'S THAT'S HOW SHE COMMUNICATES THE DEPTHS OF HER SOUL AND AND SOMETIMES SOMETIMES THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON SHE'S TALKING TO WHEN SHE'S COMMUNICATING IS HERSELF EXACTLY AND AND THIS IS A BIG PART OF THE CAREGIVERS JOURNEY. THIS IS THE PART THAT IT GETS LOST AND THAT'S WHY THIS POEM SPOKE TO ME SO MUCH IS THAT WE ARE SO FRANTIC ON THE I NEED TO USE AND WE DO WE HAVE. I GOT A LOT OF NEAT THINGS IN HEAVEN HIM TO DO IT ON GIMPY LEG AND A BIT OF A BEEN VERY UNPLEASANT ABOUT IT TOO, BUT ALLEGE THAT I'VE BEEN RIGHT III SUSPECTED BUT WASN'T GOING TO ACCUSE YOU KNOW I GUILTY YOU KNOW, AND I HAVE IT BECAUSE I IT IT IT IT IT IT FRIGHTENS ME THAT I DON'T MIND SAYING FRIGHTENS ME WHEN I AM LIMITED. WHEN I WHEN I FEEL LIKE OH MY GOSH THIS IS THIS IS HAMPER MY ABILITY. I'VE ALWAYS HAD THE ABILITY TO MOVE FASTER THAN MOST OF GRACIE'S CHALLENGES RIGHT NOW SO I CAN'T DO THAT ANYMORE.

AND THAT'S NOT THIS IS SOMETHING I SHOULD DO. BY THE WAY SHE SOMETHING I DID OUT OF THE SENSE OF MY OWN FOR INDEBTEDNESS AND IT'S IT'S ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT I'VE HAD TO LEARN TO ACCEPT CERTAIN LIMITS CERTAIN REALITIES THAT I DON'T I CAN KEEP UP. I WOULD I WAS A YOUNG AND AND EVERYBODY HAS TO DO THAT AND IT'S A REALLY LONG JOURNEY IS WHEN YOU'RE A KID, EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE AND IT STILL DON'T GET ME WRONG, BUT IF YOU ARE A GREAT QUOTE EVERYTHING EVERYTHING THAT I'M DOING NOW WAS USED TO BE IMPOSSIBLE TO KNOW I CIRCLE BACK. I LIKE THAT I WILL TAKE A QUICK BREAK WILL BE RIGHT BACK IS ROSENBERG JOHN BUTLER HEY THIS IS JOHN BUTLER HAVE LEARNED SOMETHING THAT PROBABLY ALL KNOW THAT GRACIE, HIS WIFE LOST HER LEGS MANY MANY YEARS AGO AND STARTED A PROSTHETIC LIMB OUTREACH MINISTRY CALLED STANDING WITH HOPE AND RECENTLY THEY ENDED UP WITH A RATHER UNIQUE AND UNEXPECTED PARTNER, PETER HAD A CONVERSATION WITH GRACIE AND NICHOLAS GRACIE. WHEN YOU ENVISION DOING A PROSTHETIC LIMB OUTREACH. DID YOU EVER THINK THAT INMATES WOULD HELP YOU DO THAT, NOT IN A MILLION YEARS. WHEN YOU GO TO THE FACILITY RUN BY CORE CIVIC OVER NASHVILLE AND YOU SEE THE FACES OF THESE INMATES THAT ARE WORKING ON PROSTHETIC LIMBS THAT YOU HAVE HELPED COLLECT FROM ALL OVER THE COUNTRY THAT YOU PUT OUT THE PLEA FOR AND THEIR DISASSEMBLY SELL THESE LEGS LIKE WHAT YOU HAVE YOUR OWN PROSODY AND ARMS AND ARMS EVERYTHING WHEN YOU SEE ALL THIS. WHAT DO YOU MAKE ME CRY BECAUSE I SEE THIS ON THEIR FACES AND I KNOW I KNOW WHAT IT IS TO ME LOCKED SOMEPLACE WHERE YOU CAN'T GET OUT WITHOUT SOMEBODY ELSE ALLOWING YOU TO GET OUT COURSE MEANING IN THE HOSPITAL SO MUCH AND SO LONG AND SO THAT THESE MEN ARE SO GLAD THAT THEY GET TO BE DOING AS AS ONE MAN SAID SOMETHING GOOD FAMILY WITH MY HANDS. DID YOU KNOW BEFORE YOU BECAME AN AMPUTEE THAT PARTS OF PROSTHETIC LIMBS COULD BE RECYCLED NOW HAD NO IDEA AND I THOUGHT A PEG LEG. I THOUGHT OF WOODEN LEGS.

I NEVER THOUGHT OF TITANIUM AND CARBON LEGS AND FLANKS THE SEA LEGS AND ALL THAT. I NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT THAT AS YOU WATCH THESE INMATES PARTICIPATE IN SOMETHING LIKE THIS, KNOWING THAT THERE THERE HELPING OTHER PEOPLE TO WALK THERE, PROVIDING THE MEANS FOR THE SUPPLIES TO GET OVER THERE.

WHAT IS IT DO TO YOU. JUST ON THE HEART LEVEL. I WISH I COULD EXPLAIN TO THE WORLD. WHAT I SEE IN HERE AND I WISH THAT I COULD BE ABLE TO GO AND SAY THE THIS GUY RIGHT HERE DENISE GO TO AFRICA WITH THAT. I NEVER NOT FEEL THAT WAY OUT EVERY TIME YOU KNOW YOU ALWAYS MAKE ME HAVE TO LEAVE. I DON'T WANT TO LEAVE THEM.

I FEEL LIKE I'M AT HOME WITH THEM AND I FEEL LIKE THAT WE HAVE A COMMON BOND THAT WOULD'VE NEVER EXPECTED THAT ONLY GOD COULD PUT TOGETHER. NOW THAT YOU'VE HAD EXPERIENCE WITH IT WHAT YOU THINK OF THE FAITH-BASED PROGRAMS.

THE CORE CIVIC OFFERS.

I THINK THEY'RE JUST ABSOLUTELY AWESOME AND I THINK EVERY PRISONER OUT THERE SHOULD HAVE FAITH-BASED PROGRAMS LIKE THIS BECAUSE THE RETURN RATE OF THE MAN THAT ARE INVOLVED IN THIS PARTICULAR FAITH-BASED PROGRAM AND OTHER ONES LIKE IT, BUT I KNOW ABOUT THIS ONE ARE.

IT IS JUST AN AMAZINGLY LOW RATE COMPARED TO THOSE WHO DON'T HAPPEN AND I THINK THAT SAYS SO MUCH THAT HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH ME JUST HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH GOD USING SOMEBODY BROKEN TO HELP OTHER BROKEN PEOPLE. IF PEOPLE WANT TO DONATE OR USE PROSTHETIC LIMBS, WHETHER FROM A LOVED ONE WHO PASSED AWAY OR YOU KNOW SOMEBODY WELL GROOMED.

YOU'VE DONATED SOME OF YOUR OWN FOR THEM TO HAVE IT, HOW THEY DO THAT PLEASE GO TO STANDING WITH HOPE.COM/RECYCLE STAINING WITH HOPE.COM/RECYCLE TEXT GRACIE AND JOHN. JUST A LITTLE BIT YOU KNOW WHAT I EXPECT REGULARS BY THE WAY AS REGULAR LISTENERS OF THE SHOW YOU'RE GOING TO KNOW THAT FOR THOSE WHO FIRST PUBLISHED PODCAST.

WE DON'T REHEARSE AND AND WE DEVICE IT WAS GIVEN WHEN I FIRST STARTED DOING THE SHOW BY GUY THAT HAD A LINKAGE.

RADIO IS NEVER SCRIPTURE SHOW AS IT WILL BE A PROBLEM. I DON'T LIKE ANYTHING, THEY ONLY LET OUT SOME SOME THINGS I'LL HAVE AN OUTLINE AND I LIKE TO THROW THINGS THAT JOHN.

IT'S ALMOST LIKE CARSON. HE SAID HE STOPPED THE BAND A LITTLE LIKE THAT. I LIKE TO DO THAT WITH JOHN BECAUSE I HIS FIRST IMPRESSIONS OF ANYTHING I TALK ABOUT USUALLY ARE SO INTERESTING AND OFTEN UNEXPECTED AND AND SO SO HERE IS I DON'T THINK.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I WILL I PRIDE MYSELF ON BEING AN EXPECTED BUT NO REAL HIGH EFFICIENT OUTLET WILL END AND BACK I HAVE. I HAVE ALWAYS ENJOYED ALL OF OUR CONVERSATIONS AND WAY TO DO RADIO AND BROADCAST BECAUSE YOU WOULD THINK THAT WE HAVE ALL THESE LITTLE KUGEL GIMMICKS IN THIS OR THAT OR WHATEVER KNOW I JUST MUST HAVE A CONVERSATION. I KNOW MY AUDIENCE AUDIENCE IS NOT INTERESTED IN BEING LECTURED TO THE JUST WANT TO BE A PART OF A CONVERSATION AND AND AND AND AND BE IN THEIR LANGUAGE THE WAY THEY CAN UNDERSTAND, SO I'M GOING TO THROW TOPIC AT YOU THAT I'VE NOT. THERE IS NO WAY WE HAVE NOT CORRELATED IN THE WAY FASHION OR FORM, BUT A FRIEND MUST'VE THIS TO ME AND I STRUGGLED WITH THIS SINCE MY SURGERY I HAD NOT BEEN SLEEPING WELL. I HAVEN'T HAD A GOOD NIGHT SLEEP AND NOW OVER TWO MONTHS AND IT IS REALLY TAKEN A TOLL ON ME AND HE USED TWO INCOME FROM SURGICAL BACKGROUND AND THERE WAS A BIG BRAVADO IN A LOT OF SURGEONS HOW THEY CAN GO THE EXTRA TIME WITHOUT SLEEP AND SOLDIERS ALL THE STUFF UNTIL A NICE FEEL ROAD ROAD OF A PIECE, BUT THIS STARTED DIGGING INTO THIS ON THE THE DETRIMENT OF SLEEP DEPRIVATION. YES AND WHAT THAT DOES TO THE HUMAN MIND, BODY AND YOUR SOUL AND I KNOW MY CAREGIVERS. I KNOW THAT I KNOW THIS AUDIENCE KNOW MY MY FELLOW CHARACTERS KNOW YOU GUYS AND I KNOW THAT SO MANY OF US ARE SLEEP DEPRIVED. WE ARE NOT SLEEPING WELL AND SO I'M ASKING YOU TO CONSIDER GETTING SOME PROFESSIONAL HELP. IF THAT'S THE CASE I'VE HAD TO DO THIS IS BEEN SOMETHING I'VE HAD TO DO.

RECENTLY I HAVE I USE A CPAP MACHINE JOB. OKAY YEAH I WAS SAY THAT'S THAT'S CERTAINLY ONE OF THE THINGS, BUT THAT YOU NEED DO.

THERE ARE LOTS OF SLEEP CLINICS OUT THERE THAT PROFESSIONALS CAN MONITOR YOU DURING SLEEP, SLEEP CYCLE, AND GOVERNMENT.

GO AHEAD, I'M SORRY WHAT ARE YOU WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS DEVASTATION HAS THIS BEEN SOMETHING THAT YOU HAD TO ENGAGE WITH. I THIS IS A LITTLE PERSONAL BUT I AM ON SOME SOME MEDICATION THAT REALLY DOES NOT DO WELL WITH SLEEP. I DON'T SLEEP VERY MUCH, AND PART OF IT IS BECAUSE OF WHO I AM AS A PERSON AND PART OF IT IS BECAUSE OF MEDICATION AND SO IT'S OFTEN TIMES I HAVE TO REALLY DIAL IN WHITE ON WHAT I'M DOING AND AND PAY ATTENTION TO SLEEP BECAUSE I'VE SAID FOR SEVERAL DECADES NOW. I SAW THIS SOMEWHERE, BUT THAT SLEEP DEPRIVATION IS A VERY VERY QUICK PATH TO TEMPORARY PSYCHOSIS. IT WILL MESS YOU UP.

THERE IS A REASON WHY PEOPLE WHO ARE STRUGGLING WITH ADDICTION TO STIMULANTS END UP THINKING AND LOOKING THE WAY THEY DO BECAUSE IT WILL REALLY DESTROY YOU AND SLEEP IS THE WAY THAT OUR BODY REPAIRS ITSELF, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY SLEEP IS THE WAY THAT OUR MIND REPAIRS ITSELF AND GOES OVER ALL OF THE THOUGHTS OF THE DAY AND THINGS LIKE THAT. BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, LIKE PHYSICALLY, YOUR BRAIN, SWELLS AND CONTRACTS A LITTLE BIT WHILE YOU'RE SLEEPING DURING DIFFERENT SLEEP CYCLES AND THERE ARE DIFFERENT CHEMICALS THAT ARE RELEASED THAT WASH THINGS OUT FOR LACK OF A BETTER TERM. WE DON'T FULLY UNDERSTAND EXACTLY ALL OF THE MECHANISMS THAT GO ON DURING SLEEP, BUT WE KNOW IT IS ABSOLUTELY REQUIRED AND IN THE SAME WAY THAT WE TALK ABOUT WHAT WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU GO DOWN WITH THE FLU OR A BUM KNEE OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

WHERE DOES THAT LEAVE THE PERSON THAT YOU'RE TAKING CARE OF AND IF YOU DO NOT GET NICE GOOD RESTFUL SLEEP EASIER TO BE MAKING SOME REALLY REALLY UNINFORMED DECISIONS OR SOME IMPAIRED. YOU WILL ALSO SAY AND DO THINGS THAT ARE GOING TO BE THAT OF THE REQUIREMENTS FOR JUST GO WITH THEIR FAIRPOINT JUST GO AHEAD GO WITH ME THAT I DON'T ALREADY DEEPER DO I REALLY KNOW I WILL. AND IN THE SAME WAY THAT WE'VE WE'VE WE'VE WE'VE ALL HAD THOSE THOSE MOMENTS WHERE YOU KNOW WE SAY SNAPPED, BUT REACTED OUT OF A MOTION AND DIDN'T RESPOND OUT OF INTELLECTS OR WHATEVER, BUT WE REACTED OUT OF EMOTION BECAUSE LOOK, THERE IS A GREAT JOKE ABOUT THIS IN THE SNICKERS COMMERCIALS. YOU KNOW YOU'RE JUST NOT YOU WHEN YOU'RE HUNGRY, YOU KNOW, YOU'RE SUCH A DIVA WHEN YOU'RE HUNGRY AND LIKE ARETHA FRANKLIN WAS A SATURDAY IS NOT YOU WHEN YOU'RE SLEEPING AND YOU JUST DON'T HIM.

YES, LINDY. I WOULD ASK YOU WE JUST GET BETTER MINUTE TO LOOK AT THE TO GIVE SOME THOUGHT TO THIS, SEE IF YOU CAN REDUCE ANYTHING. JUST ONE THING JUST ONE THING IN YOUR DIET THAT IS PROVIDING ARTIFICIAL STIMULANTS. CERTAINLY AFTER YOU KNOW THE AFTERNOON OKAY ON HIS COFFEE IN THE MORNING IS FINE. CAFFEINE IS SOMETHING THAT IS NOT DETRIMENTAL WHEN USED APPROPRIATELY. HOWEVER, IT CAN THERE WERE TIMES IN MY LIFE WHEN I WAS DRINKING COFFEE THROUGH THE ENTIRE DAY AND I SHARE AND I WOULD HAVE IT AT DINNERTIME.

THAT'S THE TIME TO HAVE COFFEE AND FOUR FOR CAREGIVER INTEREST. MAYBE YOU CAN GET BY WITH THIS IS THIS IS SPECIFICALLY FOR CAREGIVER SO CAN YOU THINK OF ONE THING IN YOUR LIFE.

I WOULD, ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS BEFORE WE HAVE TO LEAVE THERE SOMETHING YOU CAN ADD AND THAT IS REGULAR EXERCISE GOING FROM PREACHING METAL AND I KNOW THAT YOU GUYS ARE EXERCISE WALKING AROUND PHYSICALLY AROUND ALL THOSE THINGS.
