A merciless attack

When you care for the person you live with full time, there is no getting away from the
impact of the illness.

It destroys every normal event and celebration. It invades every part of your life and awareness, in a way the formal, paid carer does not have to be so concerned with,because they will have their own life apart from their caring responsibilities.

There is no let up to the disease's merciless attack, its progressive worsening, its savage
ravaging of my wife. The worse times, I think, are when it is so bad, there is apparently nothing
I can do to help ease, even slightly, the suffering.
