This is not a fairytale. There will be no happy ending. But there will be much laughter along with tears, much happiness along with sadness. My husband was diagnosed with early onset dementia, probable Alzheimer’s, in 2012. Since then the diagnosis has been changed to Lewey Body Dementia, Vascular Dementia, and Mixed Dementia. Though all of these are not confirmed, the only thing confirmed is that he suffers from Dementia.
My purpose in writing this blog is two-fold: to help myself with the emotions bubbling up as we enter the second decade struggling with this awful disease; and to help those of you on this unwanted, unpredictable journey by sharing the many things I have learned during the past ten years.
Thank you for reading my blog. I will share resources along with the story of our personal journey, and I would love for you to comment!
