Is everyone else as busy as I am? It seems like I never stop. It's been almost 9 yrs since my husband was first diagnosed with AD. His condition originally improved with the medications (Aricept and Namenda), but the last year has been downhill. He isn't able to make decisions and that was hard for me to accept at first. Now I'm glad when he allows me to pay bills and handle financial matters. Previously, he would get quite upset and tell me I thought he was dumb if I attempted to do something without consulting him. Since he isn't able to make decisions, doesn't drive and I have to supervise nearly everything he does, I have to do it all. I know many people are in a much worse situation than we are. Just don't feel like I have support of family or friends, except for one couple.
I am thankful that my husband still has a good attitude and a sense of humor. Instead of looking at what I/we can't do, I try to look at what we are able to do. I feel that God has a reason for allowing us to go through this. Hope that I can continue our journey with grace and patience!
Thanks for sharing.
