Keeping Positive Focus

Saturday, October 08, 2016

I have been struggling with depression with my day to day health challenges and my wife's early Alzhemers which I am starting to see progress a little bit more each day. Each day my hope and prayer, and goal is to live within that day, in THIS day, do whatever I can to care for myself in healthy ways, to support and encourage myself and my DW and also to do whatever I can to enjoy the gift of life and all the blessings I have. The gifts and blessings FAR outnumber the challenges, and sometimes it is easy to forget that when I am hung up on the negative aspects of the day.

    It's hard to watch someone you love slowly slip away; the road you're walking is a difficult one. You are doing exactly the right thing - trying to take care of yourself and live in THIS day, appreciating the gifts and blessings you DO have.

    You have some real challenges, but you have the right perspective. We only get one day at a time. We have to do the best we can and ask God to help us with the rest.

    Depression is a hard thing to deal with. Sometimes just talking with people helps so much. I'm so proud of you helping your wife with her Alzheimer's. I know it's a challenge emoticon
