My Day to Post

by Cindy R. Williams

August 16 is my day to post. I am sunk. We moved my MIL (Mother-in-law) into our home. She has Alzheimer's. I thought I knew what I was doing and how to deal with this, since my Dad died of this horrible disease and although my Sainted mother was his primary care giver, I helped her as a support person.

Bottom line, I was dead wrong. I am so out of my element. Each day is a new tornado, and I am spinning.

More later if I survive.

  1. God bless you and your sweet mother-in-law and your family. You are serving in the most needed and loving way. I can't begin to imagine how difficult it is for you. What can I do to help? Do you need respite care? Please, please, please remember to take care of you. Alzheimer's is a disease that creates health issues for caregivers because they either don't use or don't have resources. If you need an hour or two to go take a walk or a nap or whatever..Call me/email/text...and I will come help. Don't wait until you end up in the hospital in total exhaustion. I hope I haven't overstepped my bounds by offering this...I love you. hugs~
