I’m finding it increasingly more difficult to find a balance. With all Lizze has going on right now, I find it very difficult to stand by and just watch her go through it.

I’m very much a caregiver by nature. Lizze would say that I have to fix everything, and there’s probably truth to that. I know it can be counter productive at times but I mean well.

It’s difficult to describe the feeling of helplessness that comes with watching your loved ones struggle with everyday life and be powerless to actually make a difference.

It’s been one of those days where this struggle is particularly difficult for me.

Lizze is having a rough time and Emmett is miserable. I can’t make their pain go away and that really bothers me.

I know it’s irrational but it’s just how I feel.

Balance is the one of the harder things to find in our lives' especially with how much you go on. You just being there, and being available, is the best thing you can do! Hang in there.
