I am sorry but I can’t see all you wrote. I am having a problem signing in.
Hi @janet7, I'm glad that you can connect here with Julie aka @billchitwood, @tsc @rgalitis @teacher502 and others.
I completely understand the feeling of what you said, "Fear of the unknown is starting to weigh on me so I must live just for today, and it’s a struggle." It is so important to live each day and hour as it comes, but also not losing yourself or your health.
Feeling more confident in your decisions is not easy when caring for someone with dementia. What seems like an absolute necessity one day may turn on a dime the next to be a non-issue. You can't help but doubt your assessment of the situation with these fluctuations. I'll be interested in hearing from others about how they learned to accept the future and trust their decisions and where they found support to make and uphold them.
So, let's start with one day at a time. How are you doing today, Janet?
