Hey, friends. How are you all doing? Please let me know. I'd love to hear from you.
I am following the news from the UK - scary mutation, Brexit uncertainty and short supplies and all - and really feel for you folks over there. It's not great in most of the US either, of course; even in Maine, which has been relatively well managed this year, things are trending badly. This will be a Christmas we remember all our days, one way or another. I hope we can manage to look back on it with some degree of pride at how we made the best of things. Dealing with PSP can teach the joy of perseverance, of finding small pleasures and little victories, however fleeting. From the isolation of the illness and the caregiving, perhaps we are better equipped for this than others less tested.
Pollyanna me, I know many here are just barely holding on by the fingernails. Forgive me; I understand if you would rather scream and cry than be brave and patient another second.
Please, either way, be as well and safe as can be, everyone. Hold tight to the ones you love, as much as you can.
I'm rooting for you, and lighting candles for us all. At least up here in the north, the days are now getting longer. Love and peace, Ec/Sarah
