I know this is not my Alzheimer’s blog but this is so important to me that I wanted to share it on both blogs. Alzheimer’s or any form of dementia, is H.O.R.R.I.B.L.E but rarely do you hear anyone express the realities of it. When I watched this video just now it resonated such truth to me that I just had to share.
After I watched this, I wanted to know how her mom is doing now. I haven’t found much but did come across the most amazing video of this young woman giving a speech at Biola University. In it she describes the spiritual journey she’s gone through discovering God’s character and developing a relationship with Him. This combined with her talking about her mom’s condition is beyond inspiring. She is a very young caregiver that all caregivers can relate to and others of us can learn from. The first video is part of the second one so you can speed through that if you want to but most of the second video is new stuff.
With what I’ve experienced over the last few years with my brain, it’s become important to me for people to understand brain deterioration, whatever the cause. Feel free to share today’s blog with those you love.
I just had a friend write me about a situation she finds herself in with her mom who is showing signs of dementia. While I don’t know answers to everything I will always be glad to share things we did or tried with mama that were successful (or not successful so you don’t do that!) in a similar or same situation. Please don’t ever hesitate to reach out to someone else for help or comfort while dealing with this despicable disease.
This hasn’t been an especially happy blog today but I do want to leave you with something a little lighter.
Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
