who is miss jay alexander dating - God words on dating

I don’t even believe in a higher power, let alone one true God.Even so, for the past several years I often find myself praying.

Instead of a magical cure, I pray for an end to my mother’s life. Ironically, Mummy, as her family often calls her, is in remarkable physical health.

At age 92, she takes few medications and is ambulatory.

Even if we lived in a state where choosing death is an option, Mummy would have to possess the mental capacity to make this crucial decision and then personally carry it out. *Photo Purchased From i Stock Photo Tagged as: aging, aging parents, Alzheimer's blog, Alzheimer's disease, care giving, caregiver, cognitive abilities, cognitive function, Dating Dementia, dementia, elderly, end of life, end of life decisions, how to die, older adult, older parents, sandwich generation I feel the same way you do and I do believe in God, I just do not understand why he would let people live in this horrible state, it is emotionally and financially draining on their family.

Sadly, she is far beyond the point of making any decisions, especially the choice to end her own life. She doesn’t have a lot of money and my Dad passed last year he left a little but NOT enough to afford her nursing home and she had to go because she was not taking care of herself.

If anyone knows how tragic Alzheimer’s can be, it is my mother.

She lovingly cared for my dad — who also had the disease — at home for many years.

She is not emotionally prepared to answer questions to answers she should have asked herself 10 years ago when this all started. She halluncinated before, got agitated, but was basically ambulatory with help. One doctor told us the hallucinations might lessen as the brain continued degenerating. My advice is to always remember that there REALLY is someone still locked in there and understands more than we/I understood.

Now she is weak and bedridden but the hallucinations are gone. Always be careful when talking about them in there presence/I made this mistake and now feel crushed.

While Mummy may not have major physical ailments, there is no doubt that she is suffering terrible mental anguish.

Alzheimer’s has wiped away most of her brain, including her memories, personality and ability to communicate.

Mummy experienced the devastation of Alzheimer’s disease firsthand.
