There are so many wonderful blogs out there providing great resources and the peace of mind associated with knowing you aren’t alone. Sometimes, that’s just what we need – to know that the thoughts we’re having, the ups, the downs, the guilt, and the uncertainty – they’re all a “normal” part of this journey. No matter how you’re feeling at any given moment, someone else has felt that way, too. It’s so important to just ride it out and not be too hard on yourself.
Today, I ran across this article from the Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation. The author, Gary Joseph LeBlanc, was the primary caregiver for his father who suffered from Alzheimer’s disease. He recently published a collection of his articles in a book titled, “Staying Afloat in a Sea of Forgetfulness.”
I hope Gary’s words and experience will provide comfort to readers who find themselves traveling their own Alzheimer’s journey.
