Re: Alzheimers spouse

I am not dealing with a spouse but with my Mom (and my Dad in the past). Just know that it is very difficult to wrap your mind around this diagnosis and find our new normal but that will come in time. Be sure to get help. You can not do it alone and you can not have too much help. Stay in the moment, enjoy the moments you can, and try not to project too much into the future and wish for what might have been. Keep your sense of humor. It will serve you well. Find places to vent, get advice, and support! Please take care of yourself, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. This will give you the balance you need to take care of your loved ones... which will be a benefit to you both

Love, deb
