...today is the first day of the rest of my life!
As many of you know, I am busy caring for my husband, who is suffering with dementia.
Hmm, is he suffering? Not really, but I certainly am. I ache knowing what he has forgotten
or has no feelings for any longer. Without thinking, I catch myself saying, “Honey, remember
when we were in Austria?” or “Alaska” or “Hawaii” ………. and oh so many other places.
His blank stare is painful. His hobbies have gone by the wayside and it is a full-time job
keeping him interested in much of anything.
I have a permanent ‘shadow’ no matter what room I enter ... read between the lines.
Thankfully after being married for 58.5 years, I don’t mind his company, but…
Today I say farewell to my regular posts here in Am3 … though I hope to visit,
and who knows, maybe even comment.
January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.
