Sheri Zschocher began blogging in 2008 to cope with caring for her husband who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. As a caregiver, she has found a sense of humor with humility. When caregivers began writing to her about how her blog had inspired them, she was genuinely surprised.
Juggling a full-time job and caregiving, she blogs short snippets under what has become known as “Living with Bob and Al.”
Sheri writes this blog in the third person. She finds this narrative approach enables her to view her situation from a distance – how she copes with Al’s influence over her husband, Bob. (“Al” is Alzheimer’s.)
You will laugh as you read how, despite Sheri’s OCD-like preoccupation with Bob’s button, “Al” manages to win the Battle. Just look at how “Al” buttoned Bob’s shirt!
