All continue to provide ideas that broaden guidelines to be more culturally inclusive. My training of professionals continues today. 1 I couldn't be happier about this. In 2009, at the beginning of winter, I began writing this book, motivated by my long-standing belief that if people can understand a problem, they are better able to cope with it. The theory of ambiguous loss is grounded in that premise. A year has passed, and snow is falling again. It's a welcome quiet in the midst of what are stressful times for the millions of people who are now caring for a loved one who has dementia.
Complicated grief is grief that goes on too long. The grieving person doesn't follow what psychiatrists call the normal path of grieving, with symptoms of sadness, poor appetite, insomnia coming to an end after two to six months. 1 It is no longer normal grieving and implies personal pathology. In the case of dementia, however, the type of loss is the problem, not the mental and emotional state of the caregiver. Dementia creates a loss that is ongoing; thus your grief is also ongoing. Your grieving may not be over for years, even decades.
To lower your stress, use both-and thinking to change perceptions: She is both gone and still here. I take care of both him and myself. I am both a caregiver and a person with my own needs. I both wish it was over and wish that my loved one keeps on living. I am both sad about my lost hopes and dreams and happy about some new hopes and dreams. I thought of shifting perceptions while standing in the Louvre a few years ago looking at the Mona Lisa. Is she smiling or not? The answer depends on my perception—and that, fortunately, can change.
