This is dementia. It's not just a memory problem.
What you read in this blog is purely my own personal experience in dealing with Lewy Body Dementia every day.

This is not meant to offer any medical or legal advise.
I have no professional training in care giving or experiences in formal writing.
I'm just a woman that loves her husband deeply and wants to provide him with the best quality of life he can and chooses to have.
My prayer though this is "Lord, What am I learning from this; how can I use it help someone else and to glorify You?"
If just one person finds comfort in this public blog. I will feel like it was a success.

This will be WAY TMI unless you are a caregiver or have interest in caregiving and desire to learn more.

Don't say I didn't give you fair warning.

You can turn back now and nobody will feel harshly towards you about it.

Last chance!

Ok, I warned you,

Lewy Body comes with a constipation issue. Even though we have tried numerous relieving techniques the fact remains I can't force my loved one to take them on a daily basis and I won't change his diet to the extreme he is frustrated and angry more than he already is. Thus I supply him with his desire for whatever he wants, specifically candy and the consequences that come with it.

We both learned a hard lesson on impaction.

We finally dug around until a solution was found and it all worked out in the end.
We'll know better next time, I hope.

Nuff said.
