To Close to See

by Doug
(Northern Fla)

For the last 2 years I have cared for my mom. For most of it she has been angry and demanding. It has been very stressful.


I have been to close to see the slow onset of dementia until recently. Now she is seeing things and hearing things. I thought for a long time she was just an angry person. Now I realize what was going on. I took her to a senior health center and the Dr confirmed what I thought might be going on.

I feel so sad that I did not recognize this sooner. I hope I can do right by her and keep her safe and well. She was the rock of our family and now just a shadow of her former self. I miss her smile and the joy she brought me as a younger man.

Dementia is such a horrible way to leave this world. Your prayers for her please.

My Thoughts are with You

It is so hard to see someone so strong become debilitated in this way. I pray for your mother and for you. You are a good and caring person.
