Caregivers Who Have Lost Someone
I've lost so many to this disease...
My grandfather on my dad's side had Alzheimers as well as my dad's sister. Then my dad passed away from it in2016but it was never determined which kind he had, I believe it was Lewy body due to the way he acted. Shortly after my dad died, my mother started showing symptoms of Dementia which we later determined that to be Lewy body as well. She passed away last January. Then my 62 year old brother who was a Marine veteran went into the hospital in January of 2021 and basically never got better after suffering a stroke in 2016. My older sister is showing signs of Dementia and I was tested thru a neurologist and found to be borderline Dementia but I have already had a stroke at the age of 30 and years suffering depression including Schizoaffective disorder.
I know this was a lot throw out all at once but I needed to say it. Thank you.
You have suffered many losses and one special one only recently. With the holidays coming, ones we used to share with our missing loved ones, it could be very sad and hard on you. I'm sorry for you and for all of us who will be missing our loved ones.
Sometimes it is hard to feel joy, but I try to remember that my mom's prayers were always that her children have good lives, happiness and health and so I try to be happy for her sake. She would want that for me, as I'm sure your loved ones would want that for you. Take good care!
