In ‘One Yellow Door’ Rebecca de Saintonge explores how caring for a loved one, long-term, can challenge your faith and threaten your personal survival.
This website is a place for us to share experiences of illness and caring, and to explore faith in the light of doubt and suffering.
Only those who have looked after a loved one with dementia know the complexity of emotions you struggle with: the daily grief, the painful pretence of normality, the fatigue. You struggle to survive as your own life is gradually overwhelmed. And who looks after you? How do you stay alive?
We hope this website will provide a safe place to share the challenges of caring and surviving.
As my husband’s illness progressed, my faith faltered in the light of his suffering. So many things I’d been told to believe no longer made sense. I had to rethink my beliefs and try to find a new spirituality.
Many who read 'One Yellow Door' said they felt the same.
Here is a place to share your thoughts and ideas about rethinking faith.
