Live In The Real World

We have to live in the real world, don’t we? Yes, usually, most of us do.

But the best piece of advice I ever got  when my husband was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease, was ‘live in his reality’.

Think about it. Asking the same question, pressuring you about a pair of socks might sound ridiculous but not to the patient.

Patience, empathy, and the real world gets in the way, but you have to figure it out for yourself.

My husband is now fine. We were one of the few lucky ones, they reversed the diagnosis seven years later.

I never forgot that advice, and I’m passing it along to you. Think about it and use it when you have to.

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene
