The (not so) Hidden Costs of Caregiving

My journey is so long and painful. Because my husband lives in a care facility I have the option to walk away from unhealthy conversations which is what I do. I had to learn how to converse with him to avoid his "bvFTD" rudeness which is simply taking the conversation in a more positive direction, which does not necessarily work. With his continued declined he has had a personality change and he is more pleasant these days. I'm thankful for that!

You have been at this for some time now, how are you holding up? I am glad you have found ways to deal with conversations. I am also glad you found a care facility you are comfortable with. My heart goes with you today.
