My Mom's diagnosis

Hello everyone. I'm having a hard time coping with everything. I thought I would deal with this better because I saw my beloved Grandma slowly slip away from because of alzheimers, but I'm not dealing with my Mom's diagnosis well at all. I feel all alone and scared. I'm glad she still remembers who I am, but there is so much she no longer remembers that my heart is aching.

DoodBooMom, you'll get some much better responses if you post upstairs in Caregivers Forum.

For what it's worth, one of the things that has helped me the most is realizing how much my wife Barbara loved me, and knowing that what I have to focus on is that very fact, and not her loss. Having said that though, I know it's a tough boat to row. You're only as alone as you let yourself be, because there are many here who are willing and happy to not only lend an ear, but to let you in on every bit of grief they have had,and to share every little thing that has helped them along on this most unwelcome journey.
