I worry about losing my family. Last weekend all but one of my humans went out of town. . - what about you?
Dear Linda: So nice of you to ask! Almost every night I meet my puppy friends Onyx and Remy outside to play and even though they’re small they’re always happy to chase me. So – I’d say my neighbors are treating me great! How about yours?
My name means “someone” in Hebrew, because apparently my people think I’m really “someone” special!
I’m sorry your Dad is sick and it’s so hard. You are doing something beautiful by caring for your father. This is something to be very proud of. Set a reminder every day to remember this, and feel proud. Maybe it will give you the strength to carry on.
The Inside Story
Family trouble, especially an illness in the family can be very taxing. It can take a toll emotionally, physically, and financially. It can cause a lot of stress. This is especially the case when the illness is serious, lasts for a long time, prevents the sick person and even family members from working. That kind of thing is very hard for a family to deal with.
