I really should have been journaling my experience with raising my son, but I was too busy juggling.  Juggling a marriage, a mother with Alzheimer’s disease, a career and pursuing higher education, and dealing with the loss.  No wonder it seems like a big blur. The irony is not lost on me that, I can’t remember.  I do have to thank my ex husband for his lack of involvement with my son from the beginning, because it taught me how to be a single parent up front.  My ex husband conveniently worked afternoons, which exempted him from a lot of things, but that’s another story for another day.

One thing with looking after a sick loved one is that “guilt” will be your new best friend.  I always felt guilty. This is why when I look back at the almost 18 years, I now understand why people say, “how did you do all of that?”  Yeah, how did I?
