Alzheimer is now a constant companion in our home. I tried to prepare when it was in the early stages. I am not certain anyone can truly prepare to watch their loved one turn into a stranger. Every day I find myself looking for a glimpse of the man I married. Once in awhile,he is here for just a moment.
There is one thing that gives me solace. It’s a song. It is a reminder that he doesn’t know that I am hurting. He doesn’t feel the same pain. It is not going to hurt him when I cry. While the disease is horrible, he won’t remember. He won’t miss me.
Give it a listen.
