Lillian, my dear wife, has Neurocognitive Disorder. This has given me a whole new way of defining my existence. It has proven to be a painful but exhilarating turning point that gives the opportunity to learn the meaning of love. "I love you" has become the new mantra between us, hugs have become the way of demonstrating this love through out the day even as "the new normal" is redefined daily. This is the 24/7 way of life. I sympathise with those of you who are learning this lesson in your own way, but I am so grateful that inner resources and the love of family and friends are always at hand.
