When your same sex spouse has Alzheimer's
Is there anyone else out there who is married to a person of the same gender that has Alzheimer's? My wife and I have been together for almost 22 years. Now we are taking the hard journey together with her new companion, "Al."
I don't see much activity in this forum. Is it hidden somewhere, or are people just lurking, waiting for someone to start chatting?
Hello Alena, and welcome to this Message Board. I am sorry for the reason that brings you here, but am glad you found us.
The answer to your question is, that this particular Forum is not well attended. What most ssame gender spouses or partners do, is to Post on the Spousal/Partner Forum where there is a much larger Member group. That way, they are seen and get much more input.
There are several same gender spouses on that Forum and I can tell you that they have all been welcomed with open arms. There is so much support and assistance there because there is the larger group of Members.
You may want to go over to that Forum and take a look or even start a Thread regarding your own situation.
As I often say, we are all here in support of one another and that now includes you too! Hope to see you over on the Spousal/Partner Forum.
