(Just my musing) I picture my DH on a path I call ... Mt. ALZ with me by his side.  Sometimes the path is smooth but the farther we go, the more difficult the path becomes, steeper, road blocks, drop offs, scarier.  I can see where co-morbidities and other health factors such as age and physical abilities can play such a significant role in traversing this mountain.  Also family support when hitting a rough path can help us through it. I feel for others also carrying heavy burdens themselves... full time jobs, financial problems, young children, while still trying to help their LO over this mountain. Others are further along the path and I so appreciate their advice on upcoming difficulties to watch out for. No one is around us.  We are alone but can sometimes read their messages on which way to go (which is like a lifeline).  Others have reached a stage, they are carrying their LO.   In the meantime, we trudge along our path enjoying when it is smooth or scenic (occasionally pausing here) not knowing what is ahead only knowing we have to keep going, as the path will change on us (think mudslide or avalanche) whether we move along or not. There is no turning back.  Just my musing (or ramble) for the day.
