I’m Alive And Have Returned From My Vacation From Hell #DementiaSucks

Howdy, all!! I hope that you all are having a wonderful day. I wanted to write up a little posting explaining my absence and let you all know about somethings that are going on around here at Bites Reviews. Most of you know that my husband and I take care of my father in law now who has dementia. It has been a struggle, to say the least. A couple of weeks ago we decided to take him to Deleware to visit his family and he was excited about it the days he could remember, but it was far from a vacation.

When we got to Deleware, he had a total psychotic break refusing to go into his house and just being nasty. The next day he wondered off and to make a very long story short the police were called. He was admitted to the hospital the first four days that we were there and when we finally were able to get him out things just got worst. He would not leave the house and again very combative. 

This week my husband and I had enough and headed home. We had to lie to get him in the car and when we stopped to get gas on the way home he jumped out and refused to get back in the car because he was being kidnapped. What a mess.

I had plans to write a beautiful posting on how to “Travel With Dementia” but honestly, just don’t do it!!! Unless they are in the beginning stages. 

As for my blog, it has been stagnant and nothing going on. Everything was just way too stressful for me to even handle a simple posting, so I took just a short break. Tomorrow I will be back finishing up postings and doing a giveaway (this one you will not want to miss). Not only have I been thinking really hard about where I want my blog to go but I have decided to branch out a bit, and since I am a caregiver now I want to help people that are going through the same things. So you will see more postings about Dementia and daily life. 

I am glad to have finally gotten some of my sanity back and ready to get back to doing what I love. I do hope that you all join me on my new ventures, such as adding a store and selling products. I even have a couple of other excellent postings planned. Stay tunned and thank you all for sticking around during this time of total hell. 

If you are a caregiver, make sure to check out my little store. I don’t have many things in it as of yet, but I am proud so far of what I do have. 


In my product postings, most of the products have been received free for my honest review. I will always give my honest opinion. All images and posts are property of Hello Betty.
