My life wouldn't be complete without my wife, Dawn. We've been together 32 years and it's a daily balance between me being fiercely independent to needing a carer's touch keep me safe.
The One thing that gets to Dawn more than everything else is every day when she meets people, they all ask "how's Ken" Never, how are you?
She feels ready to explode at the lack of empathy for her position with PD getting all the attention. She takes great care with her diet and activity and relevant potions and lotions to such great effect she looks to be in her 30s rather than in the full throws of the men on pause. Everyone complements her on youthfuness but the fact remains she's feeling drained by all the effort involved with PD.
I now try to ask her daily, how are you today and stand close to accept my part in the saga and help the best I can. On a cheeky side-note, Dawn is not amused that she's on the Saga mailing list when I'm not.
The purpose of this post is to ask:
How are all the carers today and what helps give you a pick up when it's needed?
