About myself, not quite random facts, but why I started blogging and why I am now addicted to the world of bloggy people:-
I started writing this blog to have a record about caregiving for my mom who now has early dementia. I have gained so much more…
Writing has given me an outlet to express and vent, and spared my friends from listening to my endless tales. It has made me a more balanced person and a better friend.
The online community is a source of immense support and strength to me. So many of you have had similar experiences and have shared your lessons with me. I have been supported, encouraged and guided in my journey. Thank you all for reading, liking and commenting.
