Dementia daughter

I am a dementia daughter

My mom has dementia and I am her

Daughter

Even though she doesn’t know it

It’s been a journey like no other

I wouldn’t wish it on anyone

To see your own mom getting

Worse and worse by the day.

And all you can do is sit back and watch

Her fade away

More and more

It tares your heart out to see the one

Who you always depended on change

So severely you don’t even know

Who they  are anymore that nothing they says

Makes any sense at all just like a two year old just gibberish

It’s devastating enough to take

Your breath away!

All you want to do is scream cry til you can’t anymore

And all you want is to stop and let you off this

Rollercoaster that you’ve been on for

So long!

That’s a dementia daughter!

    It is very difficult and sad to watch one’s parent fade away… but take heart your mother doesn’t realize what’s happening… and I believe she is looked after by the Lord… Diane

    My dad in law went so fast. It seemed like one day he knew us and was holding a conversation and a few weeks later he has no idea. He is always happy so that is a blessing but it is hard.
