It was very hard on me emotionally where then I had to set limits with my father in what he discussed with me about my mother. I encouraged him to seek other sources of support in his time of crisis and I reminded him that I provided non-judgmental emotional support to both my parents. There’s no question that late-life break-ups provoke a myriad of feelings: grief, shock, loneliness, depression, shame, anger, and fear.

People with Alzheimer's disease often have to deal with fatigue and losing the ability to do many of the things that they're used to doing themselves on a daily basis. My personal life would be affected because eventually I would need help doing normal everyday tasks from showering to eating and there basically would be no personal life, I would always need someone around me to help. Socially it would definitely affect friendships because I would forget the people from my life before the disease and be left basically for my family to “deal with” and there would be no social life.

As strange as it may seem, simply creating distinctions or separations between the core issues in conflict can produce a significant shift in allowing us to approach them constructively” (Cloke, 2011).
(Chrysalis, 2010) People presenting them self to a therapist with a stress condition may or may not know they are being affected by stress, they may not recognise that they difficulties they are presenting with whether they be a stand-alone condition such as hypo stress, or in some way interlinked with each other such as panic attacks brought on by another form of stress.

Dealing with someone who suffers from this life-altering disease most certainly takes a great deal of patience and energy. Due to the fact that the schizophrenic often becomes isolated with no way to appropriately display their thoughts and emotions, it is common for friends and family members to lose contact with this person or, similarly feel abandoned by them. Often time, siblings who endured the same stressful childhood environment as the schizophrenic may develop a sense of guilt that they were not affected by such a tragic disease too. Also it is common for relatives of the schizophrenic to become worried that they too will develop a similar illness, which is possible due to the strong role of genetics. In a more immediate family setting, husbands or wives of a schizophrenic will frequently have to take on the parent role and this can easily lead to children feeling a sense of neglect.
