Peter, thanks for keeping this thread going, and Susan, thank you for getting Barb on this thread.
Krissy and Barb..what a hard road you are traveling with your husband having to go through this at a young age and kids at home. Gary often thanks me for standing by him...like I'd have it any other way!
While this disease often feels all encompassing, we have tried to make the best of the good days and I thank God for every day I have with him. You might try planning get-aways...I swear Gary rallied every time we planned a trip.
Everyone around me says I'm a rock or a "tough
cookie". I hide a lot of my emotions, as I'm sure you do, which is why I turn to people here. What a blessing to know that there are so many wonderful folks to support us. Hang in there, and email me if you'd like.
