I have just finished reading an article by Dr Muriel Porter and I think every person who has a partner affected by Alzheimer’s will entirely ‘resonate’ with her beautifully expressed sentiments!
Her writing manages to encapsulate the incredibly deep feelings of loss in a way that is seldom expressed by other authors. Certainly, it beautifully describes the continuing emotions that many of us experience when we are separated from, or continue to live with, a partner affected by Alzheimer’s. She expresses so well the feelings we live with, day to day, day by day. I can do no better than suggest you read her her story; to read it is to understand, yet again, how this wretched disease affects every member of a family, but especially the partner, left at home, alone.
Here is the link, I recommend you go and read her story…….
