Help me understand

I just read your post and I'm perplexed. I am not sure what you are trying to say.  Perhaps I'm only having a problem the way your "culture" speaks. I'm plain, white and American.  I answered your post because "in my case" I am the one who is being cared for by one of my daughters.  The others would help too but they are in NC and Kentucky.  I have been having problems with dementia for a few years now. It simply seems to sneak up on you.  My daughter takes care of me because she loves me (end of story) At least I can go into my chest of poems and stories and I intend to put them on line this weekend. At $99.00 a book, I may be able to upload 2 of them.  It's time to get published (have 7 books finished) my daug. helps me.  It's funny sitting here typing to you, if I hadn't told you you wouldn't know I had dementia.  Well, I'd like to skip to the next round because in the beginning one is very aware they have it.  I cried a few months ago when my daughter was talking about my nephew.  I was so surprised, or should I say, it took a few minutes to recall the funeral.  Everytime this happens to me, I get upset, so I'd rather get it overwith. Of course my daughters would be sad when I don't recognize them. But pain is pain, sorrow is sorrow, whether delayed or a quick onset.  Thanks for listening. My one Blog is called Dementia and Hot Tips.  I wonder why.  At least I can still type and I always get stuck on a word.  Whatever!  I'll flow with it and then when it really happens, I won't know anyway.  I'll be back to read your writings and I promise I won't write so much in your comment.  Thanks for listening.

I am the care taker for my mother
In this situation I was chosen for the task. My mother would not call my brother and my sister because she doesn't want to burden them. She seems to think that I can handle th burden. Right now she can take care of herself for the most part but she can not drive at the moment. So when she needs to go to the doctor she calls me. So how does your theory work with that?-Not that I wouldn't do it anyway.

I know you didn't look at this one yet, but you really should...
