A Million Different Meanings

I grieved the loss of many health issues and constraints, my two kids’ neurodivergence, and mom’s Alzheimer’s. However, I found my happy again by reframing my thoughts and celebrating who and what is. I dream differently now. Don’t put undue guilt, shame or expectations on your body. It’s a journey that only the strong and courageous could make it through!

Feels like I am a burden

#Dementia #AlzheimersDisease

I need some guidance, I was diagnosed with AD at least 2 years ago. I am depressed, lonely, and sad most days. I feel my family (wife and son) leave me out of day-day activities and decisions cause I may not understand, which is probably right, but I get very emotional to find out things are happening at the last minute. I get the impression that my wife’s patience is just a tad short. I don’t know what else I can do. In addition I am in pain 24/7 with diabetes and other serious illness. I can’t drive and depend heavily on my wife. I have alienated my family in my recent outburst and I don’t see a way forward. Ty for any feedback.
