Dementia sucks the life out of everyone — that includes the person, their loved ones, the staff that takes care of them.  It is such a terrible disease and lasts too long.  I wish they could find some cure for it.  I already know if I get anywhere near to thinking I will lose my mind I am off’g myself.  That is in all seriousness.  The disease is too heartbreaking to watch and the feeling of helplessness you endure is too much.
