Have you ever walked along a shoreline, only to have your footprints washed away? That’s what Alzheimer’s is like. The waves erase the marks we leave behind, all the sand castles. Some days are better than others.
This disease sucks to no end! When you witness your loved one going through what I call moments of confusion.
When she finds herself lost in a space that is her home, not knowing whether to turn right or left to find her bedroom.
It is sad, you want to save her, make her better but you can’t instead, you can only guide her and stand by her.
She lives between moments of confusion and lucidity. I live it with her every day alongside her as her caregiver.
I am her family, I love her and I support her.
