It’s been 6 weeks since my mom passed away. I miss her very much. It’s so different now that she’s not here. I’ve been trying to stay busy so I don’t think about it as much. The days just seem to run together I was so consumed with my mom and dad I forgot how to take care of me. I don’t regret taking care of them I’m glad I spent so much time with them because I can never get that back. I miss them so much it hurts to even write this.
We still haven’t had a memorial service for my mom hopefully soon because it will give me some type of closure to this journey. I know it will happen soon and it to will be a distant memory. I hope I have helped someone who is also on this journey with dementia because that would be a goal that I have accomplished through this blog. I know this road hasn’t been easy for me but I wouldn’t change any of it. At least my mom and dad are together once again. Their anniversary is July 22 and this year would of been their 61st year. Now I think that’s quite a accomplishment and now they can celebrate together in heaven. I will celebrate also with them. And one day we will all be together again. I love and miss you my sweet mom and dad! ❤️🌈💜

This is the hardest post I have ever had to write. I started this blog 5 years ago when my mom was diagnosed with dementia and I started it to try and cope with it and to help others who might be going through the same thing. Well Saturday May 23, 2020 my moms journey with dementia ended. I’m happy she’s free again and she’s my my dad. But I miss her so. Because of the virus we can’t have a service for her to later. But I’m trying to make the best of it. I will continue this blog I really like writing and sharing. I wrote this poem just a few days before my mom passed away. I hope you like it and have a wonderful day! 😊
How can I say goodbye to the person
Who gave life to me my mother, my friend
My help my protector
The person who has been with me my entire life from birth to now.
I don’t want to say Goodbye mom I love you so much I wish I could feel your sweet touch again if only for a moment.
But I know you have to go so I’m not going to stop you But I will miss you so much and I will never forget you and you will always be in my heart
And I know one day I will see you again
Til that time make sure you tell dad I love him too and miss him and love him too !
Till we meet again My Sweet Mama! 💜

Like most of you I’m kind of stuck in my house. It really changes your perspective on life and how fragile it is. After this I will never take for granted anything. Like just going out to get groceries again. Now if you dare go out you have to wear a mask and gloves and when you get home you have to go right to the sink and wash your hands. It has taught me to value everything I have cuz it can be taken so quickly.
It’s very hard but it’s not as bad as some people who have lost their love ones to this terrible disease so I’m thankful to God for that. All my family are ok so I’m very thankful for that.
The hardest part of this whole thing has been not being able to see my mom. I haven’t seen her since March 9th and its been very difficult. I’ve video chatted and talked with her on the phone but that’s not the same as actually seeing her. I miss her so and I miss my dad too who passed away last October. I’m trying to get through all of this like all of you.
I hope you are all safe and secure and I hope this comes to a end soon. For now that’s all be thankful for everyday that God gives us and never take life for granted again.
Take Care. Love to you all.

I am a dementia daughter
My mom has dementia and I am her
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
That’s a dementia daughter!

I wrote this poem. My mom is in a nursing home and I visit with her quite often. When I visit the people there look so sad because hardly any of their family visits them. Have a great day!
These are the people
That need us the most
They are our fathers, mothers
But they have been placed
Like they were erased
Nobody comes to
You can see it on their face
The loneliness and pain
All they want is for someone
To love them and to show
Them they care.
All they might need is a smile.
These are the forgotten ones.
