  2. Fully being yourself is a luxury – I hope you get to do it at least for a while.
    For me, I worry about what I’d be like to care for in the nursing home if my filters are gone – I know how bad and snarky and cutting I CAN be, keep it under tight control around other people most of the time. But I worry about how I’ll get along if I lose the ability to control it. I’ve been trying most of my life to be nicer, and it is still a huge struggle.


      • That’s sweet of you – I believe in the principles, and work to make the efforts.

        Maybe that’s all any of us have, but I’ve known some people (my husband’s mother was one) who are just nice. It seems part of them, not a reining in of stray desires. Maybe I never knew her well enough; we didn’t spend that much time together. But I like to think she was just as sweet as she appeared, and FIL was also a nice person but (possibly telling) very sure of how he wanted to do things.

        I think we can CHOOSE to have the good responses – and that doing that as much as possible trains us to some extent. But then find I’m STILL dealing with the same stuff as when I was a child – and my mother was trying to teach me not to ‘let it all out.’ Possibly she overdid it.

        I’m doing the best that I can – but am worried about what happens when something like dementia destroys my ability to choose in that department, and I revert.

        I guess we’ll see.
