Example text

The fragile acceptance of loss is retested over and over again. This roller coaster of losing, finding, and losing again will erode anyone's stability and strength. Feelings of helplessness lead to depression and anxiety. Of course, symptoms need to be treated, but attributing them to the caregiver's psychic weakness is neither valid nor fair. For this reason, the complicated grief that accompanies the ambiguous loss of dementia should be in a diagnostic category of its own. Living with someone both here and gone is a bizarre experience that can produce terrible pain and anxiety.

What looks like depression is often sadness; what looks like anxiety is often the immense stress and confusion that comes from not being able to fix the situation. Family conflict often results. Isolation increases. In this milieu, it is no wonder that so many caregivers suffer from complicated and unresolved grief. If you grieve too soon, you feel disloyal to the ill person, or others criticize you. Grief is not denied or repressed, but simply blocked by social, religious, or family taboos against grieving before death has occurred.
