The hardest year of my life

Posted by BogusRed

I've probably re-written the following blog entry countless times. I've struggled to find the right words without sounding too depressing or long winded.

So let's just keep it simple...

October 2009 to October 2010 was 12 months of hell. My Dad was diagnosed with Frontal Lobe Dementia and my life had been consumed with dealing with the emotional challenges of seeing my Dad's mind deteriorate, the stress of pursuing a conservatorship, his objections to the whole thing, moving him into assisted living, clearing out his house, and a financial battle with his siblings.

There wasn't much time for personal projects or blogging. But thankfully, my involvement now is minimal. He has a professional conservator taking care of his needs and financial affairs.

Now I can get back to wedding planning and get on with my life.
