I really feel the need to pass on a hard learned lesson. As caregivers of our loved ones we have to be so many things and wear so many hats. In this whole process of being strong and holding things together we get a little lost and start to become detached, this is a form of surviving and is a natural thing that happens. I am asking you to take a few extra moments to look at your loved one not as a person with an illness, not the look you do to see if they are okay or looking for symptons. The look of tenderness and love, remeber what they were like before the illness took over your lives. Dont worry about the tears that might come we are after all human. Dont let the wall we put up to cope and deal with all the things thrown at us get to big, we may miss some of the small tender moments that are so precious, have no regrets and never have to say I wish I had, If only I had........
When I started counting my blessings my whole world turned around.

Thank you Sue ... it is so difficult sometimes for us to cry. I love my partner so much and always promised that I would be there for him no matter what, but I never expected this. I always thought I would be the one to die first. I have always lived my life through him. Whatever makes him happy makes me happy. It is so difficult to feel so helpless.
