Being able to write about my journey is a lifeline for me. There are stresses, fears, and frustrations, that I can express in writing but not openly in discussion. It is like I am writing to a very close friend! That may be weird to some of you, but it is therapy for me. It is also a connection to a support group. Many times, you reply wit encouragement, suggestions, or even criticism. Each reply is welcomed and cherished. It is like family or close friends trying to help!
I have been blessed with the ability to express what is going on as I go down the LBD road. Many LBD patients cannot do that, and I am sorry for them. Maybe they need encouraged or enabled to blog. That is what my wife did for me. I would have never ventured on this journey without her enabling me. Now, I write all the time.
I have also made some friends and compatriots in the LBD community through blogging. That is a big benefit of being open about this disease.
So, I thank each one of you and I pray that you are all doing as well as you can. You will always be in my thoughts and prayers.
