Dorothy’s Dementia

It’s hard- and if you are experiencing a demented- or sick loved one- you know exactly what I’m talking about.

To keep the sun and the wind at your back is a constant struggle.   And it’s easy for me to write what works for me- but honestly, sometimes it’s hard to accept what is happening to mom.   

I can’t imagine the turmoil and the mental anguish she experiences every night with sundowners, (even if I do walk her though it just about every night).  The uncertainty – the helplessness, the fear, the sadness, WOW! It’s overwhelming for me some days- I can’t imagine what it’s like to be the one going through it.  

The Angels are watching over her and I know when it’s her time- she will be going back home to a place where there is everlasting peace and freedom- this is what we live this life for.

In the meanwhile, it’s my responsibility to keep mom calm, keep an open ear, an open heart and the realization that this is the way it is, it doesn’t get any better than this.

Peace & Love,

Cheryl Doreen
