Lost my wife on Dec 3rd. I had cared for her for many years as a result of Parkinson Disease and Colon Cancer. The cancer required the complete removal of the colon and thus an ileostomy for the last two and half years, which was my job. The PD progressed to the point that I could no longer care for her at home and thus into a nusring home where she basicly starved to death after two months.

I had become worn out and exhausted and became "short" with her at times, not showing enough compassion and emphaty and affection. Now I am beating myself for such behavior and hurts me and fills me with guilt knowing how I must have hurt her in the closing months of her life.

Just needed to vent my feelings!
