She wanted to go to church.
I took her.
It was one of our more stressful days.
My 74 year old mother literally dragged me along as she cut, yes CUT, the Communion line.
Friendly tip: Flip flops have zero traction.
Mental note: wear shoes that can dig in.
Happy Mother’s Day.
Hi, I am 19 years old and my mom has had Frontotemporal Dementia for the last 4 years at least. I just wanted to say that I like reading your blog because I feel like someone else understands what types of struggles my sisters and I have been going through. I feel like I try to explain my feelings to others and no one really gets it. But reading this blog makes me know that there are other people feeling what I feel. Thank you for being able to write what I cannot.
hey there, i am so sorry you are dealing with this at your age. i hope you have some great friends who listen. my friend sent me this info about a fb group that might be something you’re interested in: for the kids of parents with FTD and other early onset dementias. take a look. http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=group_187971611237497
