Stories connect us, heal us, give us strength to battle dementia another day. What's your story?
Welcome to One Brave Cowgirl — a community of caregivers who are powered by love, laughter, gratitude and hope.
Stories connect us, heal us, and give us strength to battle dementia another day. You have a tale to tell, so tell it! Honor your loved one; share your experience, strength and hope; tell us your caregiving secrets!
By sharing your journey, you make our journey a bit brighter. And talking about it, writing about it, helps us all stay sane. We like sane! Lord knows we spend enough time in Crazy Land (ok, I’ll speak for myself here.) Your story inspires all of us to keep moving. It helps us find ways to cope. It helps us laugh when laughing just doesn’t seem possible. But most of all, it let’s us know we’re not alone.
We’re always on the lookout for stories (no minimum – short and sweet is fine; maximum 800-1,000 words). Please share yours. What were your “ah-ha!” caregiving moments? What made you laugh? What got you through your worst day? How do you cope with the loss and sadness? What helps? What doesn’t help? Tell us all about it in the space below.
