Beautiful Pain


There are days so daunting

I can almost see my pain

I wonder when, oh when,

will come the cleansing rain


I am showing all the signs of

stress, even losing my hair

She is but a shell of the

woman that once was there


The pain has no rhyme or 

reason to it.  It just has to be.

No one to help me just

this Beautiful Pain I call insanity.

Just waiting 2 weeks for her next dr appointment. This has to stop. Oh and to make matters worse my transmission blew in my main car!!!!!!!!!!

    Dementia must be the bitch of all illnesses. Must be wearing you right down. At some point, it will get better.

        Both my mother and father have past from Alzheimer's and Dementia, and I can't tell the difference. But the stress is unbearable. Just do your best to hang in there Christina. Day by Day. 😐

          My wife died from dementia after suffering from it for several years, I looked after her 24/7 and it is a right pain in the proverbial. When she passed it was a release for both of us.

              Where many of us may fail, you show the strength in not walking away from her pain, your pain.
