Hello ! I'm Nina, and I am looking after my Dad. He has had Alzheimer's for over three years now. We are both feeling our way really. Every day he teaches me something..... about myself and about the world; it is quite a voyage ! Sometimes sweet, smooth and very loving; sometimes stormy, scarey and frustrating. But never dull! So far, I am SO lucky. WE are so lucky, for he is terribly sweet, kind, considerate and loving. Like so many others of you, there are certainly times when it is very hard though. Then we both muddle our way through... sometimes successfully, sometimes not.... and then, as I have read from others, the hair shirt comes out - the full guilt thing. I hate those moments. But as long as the majority of the time we muddle along well together, then I feel so grateful. So lovely to get some feedback from all of you out there. So good to feel that YOU understand! We all need a friend ... thanks..
