New poster here but started the alzheimers journey a little over 5 years ago with my mum who was diagnosed at the young age of 57. As I write this post I am at the bedside of my 62yo mum holding her hand as this challenging journey nears its end. I have said my goodbyes, kissed her, told her how much I love her and how sorry I am for all of the lows experienced over the past 5 years. I have shed many tears and now appear to be at peace with the invevitable passing of my beautiful mum. As a 33yo only child and a mum with no additional family we have walked this journey together from start to finish. As I watch and listen to mums laboured breathing, touch her mottled cool skin and stroke her forehead in comfort I know that this is the unfortunate end to a devastating illness that I would wish on no other. In the weeks to follow I hope that I can begin to share my experiences to help others but for now I wanted to capture this unique life changing moment. Love you mum.
