Grief is a painful and necessary part of coming to terms with a serious medical condition for your loved one. It seems everything changes so that it’s difficult to take it in all at once. The medical and health issues are often the first and obvious concerns. People are resilient – most are pretty good at pulling resources together to deal with an immediate crisis. However, when the first firefighting efforts have passed, this is usually when you survey the damage and realize things are never going to be the same again.
I am a health and happiness psychologist. I had an amazing opportunity to care for my late husband with dementia that brought everything into focus: love, purpose, healing, self-care, and living without regrets. You can read more of my story here.
