Dementia Love verses Attachment

Today’s Buddhist message is from Mexico:

The same as any Care Partner I need to focus on Maureen’s needs rather than my own.

She woke up this morning saying that: ‘no one wants me I’m too much trouble.  I can’t do anything for myself now.’

My reassurance that she means everything to me doesn’t cut any ice when she feels so lost and alone!

  1. My mom goes through a similar situation too. So sad. I have been reading your posts, but can’t like from my iphone. But I wanted you to know that I’m listening and reading.
