I was speaking with a client about a month ago. She lives with chronic pain, and has had two surgeries. She is caring for her mother living with dementia, who also has chronic health conditions.

Lessons from 10 Years of Writing / Blogging

Why am I not blogging more? This is a question I have asked myself several times over the last few months. I know the answer. It is a good answer. But it still makes me sad. For the longest time, my blog used to have the following text in big font: “The answers to life […]

Why My Resume Says “Full-time Alzheimer’s Caregiver”

September 27, 2014

Recently, I had to edit my resume for my job hunt. As you may all know, it’s the most boring and mind-numbing task of all. One has to glorify one’s mediocre self. Let’s face it, most of us are not as great as we think we are, or in some cases, as others think we […]

Sid sent me this article about the reaction of a person living with dementia to an old photograph. The man in this article seems to be in the middle stages of dementia. When he looked at an old photograph of himself with his girlfriend from decades ago, he recognized that the woman in the picture loved […]
