Well, I’m not sure what to think. My mother has actually expressed interest in an assisted living situation. I know it wouldn’t solve all our problems (when my father gets into late stage Alzheimer’s he wouldn’t be able to be there) but for the immediate future it could be a HUGE relief. Of course she hasn’t talked to my father about it so we’ll see. I’m afraid to be excited.
I’m going to a conference on Alzheimer’s tomorrow. My boss is unhappy that I’m taking the day off which makes me sad. I think she’s a very compassionate person so I’m a little surprised. I think perhaps I didn’t explain it well enough. I don’t know.
When I saw my doctor last month I told him I wanted to go off antidepressants and he said he wouldn’t advise it at this time of year—-to wait for spring. I think maybe he was right.
