My dad is still hanging in there. I thought his Alzheimer's would keep progressing rapidly but it seems to have a plateau at this time.
My mom and I were talking the other day about my dad and how he has worked so hard his whole life. He had an identity and he had a purpose in life. He worked hard toward his goals and he completed them.
Alzheimer's is a cruel disease. What does he do now but just lay there and wait for someone to take care of him? He is helpless. It's so sad. What is the purpose?
Makes me feel like there is so much more I can do with my life to make it productive and meaningful. What is my purpose? I hope it never stops!
You have already found purpose. You are learning about unconditional love and sharing your experiences with the world. You will never know how much your words might help someone else struggling with Alzheimer's cruelty.
