Mental Decline Is A Tough One To Accept

by Deah on Friday, June 22, 2018 12:28 PM

Mom and Dad are beginning to experience some cognitive decline. They are in denial and for the most part that is not a problem. At least not yet.

When I think about this question, I have mixed feelings. My mother is still with us and I love her dearly. I spend a couple days a week looking in on her and dad. We are close, and this year the thought occurred to me that I am lucky enough to continue presenting pink carnations to her. The carnation is the traditional flower of Mother’s Day. With pink and red for mothers who are alive and white for those who have passed away.

Sleep deprivation can also affect our mood and ability to learn, especially for children and teenagers.
