Our life for 8 years has been 24/7 care for mother in law with dementia. We make it okay because we do not want his mother to feel like burden or faulted. But we feel a deep lose of self and who we are as husband and wife. And honestly it seems people understand and tell us how what we are doing is above and beyond and go on with there full lives as we continue our lives living and it all around mother law demented world. I am sad about this but we keep on doing our lives this way.
