I miss so much of our life before PD. Today is my 70th birthday. My honey doesn't remember. No card like he used to give me. No special dinner or cake. I won't remind him. Just another day, another year. Life is so lonely now.

From one who cares (and understands), happy birthday. I wish I could give you a card and a hug.

Oh Flowers!!!!!

Happy happy birthday.
We here celebrate your life, and your steadfastness in the face of this hideous disease.

Please do something, however momentary, to acknowledge that you deserve all good things.

Happy birthday, Flowers!
I send you hugs and warm wishes to be as happy as you can be on this your special day.

Thank you all for the birthday wishes and hugs. I feel petty crying about a forgotten birthday but he always took such care in picking out the perfect cards that meant so much to me. My day was so sad and lonely but I don't know what I expected since he has PD and dementia. I guess I was hoping there could be something good that used to be. Even just a "Happy Birthday Honey". I'll get through the sadness and won't have any expectations in the future. I'll try harder to accept what is.

Happy Birthday, Dear Flowers. (I just sang for you, here at my computer. Good thing you could not hear me.) Everyone who knows you is grateful for your birth and your presence in this world.
It is very sad that your honey cannot remember. It is OK to cry. Then go make yourself and your dear one something chocolate. (or whatever is a treat you enjoy). If he was able to think clearly, he would want to do something special for you today.
with love & prayers,
mary

Happy Birthday, Sweet Woman!

If your husband could, he would tell you, too...he knew how special you were before we did! Remember that first day you met and all the lovely birthdays you shared...then do something special for yourself, however fleeting, today!

Everyone here understands, but we all want you to celebrate somehow...hugs and Happy Birthday! Jane

Happy Birthday:) Try to remember all the good ones you've had, and don't let PD tarnish those happy memories.

Happy birthday! My birthday wish for You is to reminisce on the joy of past birthdays and try not to dwell upon the now or future Birthdays if you are able. I'm sorry I have no sage advice for this however know you are in our thoughts and hearts.

All the best to you on your 70th. Be kind to yourself and get all the help you can for your sanity.
A special hug and best wishes.

Dear, dear Flowers. Birthday wishes from our group, and I am sure your husband, if he COULD remember. I am right behind you by just days, and fear the same is true for me. Good days, followed by bad days. Memories of random things, but cannot remember pill schedule, or even to eat sometimes. But he fixates on his current project in the garage shop. Go figure?? Dish up some ice cream and sing the song and the rest of us will chime in.

Thank you all so much for the birthday wishes. You are all so kind and caring. We all have so much sadness and being able to come here and communicate is sometimes the highlight of my days. Hugs and prayers
