My husband is in the beginnings of Alzheimer’s disease. Some days are good and some days are “Oh my goodness gives us both strength to survive the day.” The last few days have been an “Oh my goodness days”. I am sure there are others out there with similar sistuations. This is one of the reasons I write. I need a place where I can be in control for a bit, where things are calm and peaceful. This sight offers suggestions about real life occurances and how to cope. I found it helpful and hopefully you will as well.
