these are poems written as therapy for me as i cared for my mother with alzheimers.
To Ride The Unicorn
these are the words of alzheimers care, the steps into the abyssmal traveled by the loved one and the caregiver who cared, loved and watched. the words spoken in this book were the heartaches i felt watching her, the frustrations i dealt with as she began to lose control, the anger i felt as family and friends began to pull away and the fears i felt caring for her alone. times are different now, not many pull away, thankfully now they are pulling together. i only wish i could have experienced that feeling. this is for everyone who lives with alzheimers, i have shared the ways.
