26 dating a 20 year old
She lovingly cared for my dad — who also had the disease — at home for many years.Before my dad showed signs of memory loss, Mummy had been the primary caregiver for her own mother who had some form of dementia.When she is walking the halls, Mummy often appears to have a purpose and a destination in mind. Up close, it is immediately apparent Mummy is locked into a prison from which there is no parole.While Mummy may not have major physical ailments, there is no doubt that she is suffering terrible mental anguish.I moved out of their house at age 17 to go to college (as my parents harshly remind me everyday that I didn’t help them care for my grandfather).As long as I can remember my parents have been feeding, bathing, brushing teeth, dressing, and moving my grandfather from place to place. He does not recognize any of us and is only responsive to music.Sadly, she is far beyond the point of making any decisions, especially the choice to end her own life. She doesn’t have a lot of money and my Dad passed last year he left a little but NOT enough to afford her nursing home and she had to go because she was not taking care of herself.However, I believe individuals will eventually have more control over how and when they die, including decisions of how long to be kept alive with severe dementia. Until then, I keep praying — just in case there is a higher power. I pray every single day and some days I get so angry and resentful that she is still alive, she did not make our lives happy when she was all there so to have to quit 2 jobs to take care of her and her affairs has put a bad taste in my mouth and I just want to bury her and be done with it all.
When I do pray, it is always about my mother who is living with Alzheimer’s disease.
Now I know guys are attracted to younger girls and we are both amazed how much we are attracted to each other with such an age difference.
I am a 20 year old girl, and I am dating a 26 year old guy. If it gets harrassing then he can go to mediation and settle an agreement to where the only phonecall they would have is to only discuss visitation.
However, I am worried I as well as her can easily fall in love with each other and we are both a little worried and afraid to get hurt.
I am a pretty realistic person and understand that 19 and 26 year olds are on totally different playing fields but for some reason it doesn't seem that way with her. Our communication is amazing and we seem to be on the same page. I know you sometimes don't get choose who you love.
