I would like to end FTD Awareness Week with my tree art. I discovered that doing these tree drawings helped me relax and recharge for my care giving role. I encourage anyone in a similar situation to find some type of creative outlet. That way you won’t lose yourself as you take on that tough care giving job. I call these my yoga trees.
One thing that kept my husband Barry occupied in the first years of FTD was filling the bird feeders. We went through a lot of seed but it was worth it because it was a job he could do and it made him feel proud and needed.
A little humor helps on an FTD journey. I learned to laugh at all the blueberries on my kitchen floor. My husband became obsessed with blueberries.
