In the last class we practiced counseling techniques before everyone and we had a very talented couple amazingly act out the problem. I made a mistake of teasing the husband about yogurt, and he reminded me that was "privileged information". I gave him a quick (maybe not sincere) apology. I think I will buy him some yogurt for more of repentance! But he even brought a cup of yogurt to this practice session!

In 2008 it became evident that my husband had dementia, later diagnosed as Vascular Dementia and Alzheimer's, My papers changed to reflect caregiving, but I didn't have him read them and also he became less interested in my academic pursuits. Papers included:
- The authority of an Alzheimer's husband
- Dealing with anger of an Alzheimer's loved one
- Praying well
- Dying well
- The self-discipline of a caregiver
