A reader wrote me a few days ago and informed me that  even thou she didnt have anyone in her family struggling with Dementia, she thought my blog was "extremely" disrespectful towards my husband.
 I have been pondering her opinion for days. Wondering and re-reading past posts. I did write her back and asked if it was because I wrote about the "funnier" side of things once in awhile or that I was just writing about it in general.
 Of course I've heard nothing back. On one hand I was angry- How can someone who is not "suffering' through this terrible disease even offer up an opinion.. AND on the other hand... Maybe I am "lost" and am making a mistake by choosing this kind of forum to keep family and friends up to date?
I'll ponder awhile longer and no doubt Post again in a few days..   :)


  1. I do not have a loved one diagnosed with dementia but I look forward to this blog daily. I know dementia symptoms can be different person to person, but to hear one dedicated spouse's account has been enlightening. After caring for my husband 4+ years until his death, I would never judge how one person handles this incredible amount of stress. I don't believe there is a "right" way. One day at a time Lori-whatever works for you. I'll be with you on your journey, whether you continue this blog or not. Jan

  2. One more thing....to the person who criticized Lori regarding this blog-use the delete button if you don't like it. No one is forcing you to read this.

  3. A blog is a log, a journal, a diary, a personal accounting of what's going on in someone's life. It is not "the news". It is not "unbiased reporting". A blog is someone sharing their pain, opinions, joys, and life. Keep writing Lori ! peace

  4. Thanks Ladies! I appreciate your support!
