It is hard and tiring, this Dementia-caregiving journey. Perhaps the thing that seems the hardest is the sheer length of years and days. The first time I noticed that there was something amiss with John's ability to read, write and process words was two weeks after our wedding. That is almost twelve years ago! Understanding and diagnoses have come very slowly over the years. Time has ticked on and I have faithfully walked this journey with him, but now I am feeling the weariness.
