I am never a huge fan of pop/rock music. I love classical, jazz, and other music that doesn't seem cool to some people.
Well, one song became the theme song for what I'm going through. I am not just a caregiver of an elder who is frustrated. I'm one with autism, which affect how I respond to such a transition in life. A series of falls thrust me into the caregiving pond with little to no preparation whatsoever.
Autism and caregiving doesn't mix when one is an individual with autism, I can understand people caring for those on the spectrum, but those on the spectrum caring? That's very unheard of and new.
And that's why the theme song of what's going on in my life is Simple Plan's 2004 rock hit, "Welcome to My Life." The lyrics really fit the emotions and thoughts I'm enduring as a caregiver who already has caregiver burnout. My elder demands so much from me that I felt that I was being kicked around when I'm already going nuts.
Whenever I hear that song, I would want to sing along. So I'd do it, and it really would make me feel better.
Speaking of caregiver burnout, free respite care doesn't come until Friday night, when I have a party with me at home business partners. But I'm coping with the stresses the best I can.
Welcome to my life, indeed.
