TO - 02/23 - blue curacao... only God detects the sorrow…

“Your mother has Alzheimer's!” says the doctor.

And on that moment you feel like you’re being pushed on your stomach.
With the “first crisis” and a disease like Alzheimer's, the first challenge is facing the truth about your loss and beginning to grieve the decades ahead.

But than things aren’t so tough and you live the moment and you “know”, but you “forget” and almost deny.
Until the next crisis happens, and as time goes by and more crisis take place I think the challenge is really just knowing that your happily-ever-after has been turned over.

Life is not easy.
That's a part of our existence, we all know. There are so many things that we don't and can't accept because of so many reasons.
Failures, rejection by others, being misunderstood, being wrongfully accused and disappointments are to name a few of the stuff that have the potential to freeze our minds, to stop our inner clock from ticking, to obstruct our innermost to let things go.
And also is dealing with this insidious disease that robs a person of his or her dignity and slowly sucks the life right out of them.
It is also a fight for everyone, like me, who cares or has cared for a family member with Alzheimer's and lives with the fear that they, too, may be afflicted someday.

Therefore I want to thank everyone that commented on my last post.

  4. I'm so sorry =/. But like Petra said, she was blessed with a wonderful daughter - you. I have this little belief, though a bit farfetched, that although she may forget, her subconscious & her heart will always remember. Because that's what keeps her strong =]

  5. You are fighting such a hard fight right now, but I know you are doing an excellent job. Just keep on with your yoga - which can give you so much back after the drain that is dealing with this disease. Yoga can help you to balance and to keep your perspective through this all. I'm giving you all my good vibes.

  15. This is terrible, but as you wrote life is not easy, our family members illnesses which worth was been remind us of our own transitoriness. I'm so sorry your mommy. Nothing eternal and we can't do something about this. The biological degradation wins above our mind. :((( And yes, hope you'll find the strength you need. You are so strong and wonderful person and daughter.


    Your outfit is wonderful. The royal blue stocking is great choice.

    xoxo and I'll be thinking of you, darling, too.

  16. More the reason to live every day the way we want to I think. No more excuses and reasons not to (I'm talking like this cause I've been so motivated and invigorated by going to school lately).

    I have to say that you are looking so well lately. I mean you are always lovely but there is something different these days.

    big hug,
    Grayburn

  23. First, I love the blue tights with the red shoes.
    That disease is sad. My grandfather had it and as a child, it was hard seeing him struggle through it. Have you seen the Julie Christie movie about it? I forget the name but it is such a beautiful movie and Sarah Polly wrote it and directed it.
    A must see if you can handle it.
    I wish you and your family the best.

  24. I'm so so sorry to hear this about your mother... And like others said, she is lucky with a daughter like you. Try to stay strong and talk to someone, when you need it.

  26. I am so sorry. I know the pain you are going through. My grandmother who was truly my best friend and my greatest champion had alzheimers for almost 15 years before she died at 101. it was so terribly and unspeakably difficult. My heart aches for you, your mother and all who love her. Take good care of yourself as you take care of your mother.
    Huge hugs and lots of love to you.xoxo
