STORIES: How Zentangle changes lives“I too have been blessed with the gift of the Zentangle Method™. It IS a life saver!

It has been for me whilst my husband recovered from a stroke in 2015. Then on November 7th, “D day2017”, devastating news day happened.

He was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia. It is the second most prevalent dementia after Alzheimer’s and the least well known. I have learned so much about LBD, its effects etc.

He is now in long term care which is excellent and I visit with him 5 of 7 days a week as the facility is only a 15 min drive from our digs.

I finally managed to climb out of my personal pit. I am now back more or less on track. Getting a decent night’s sleep helped plus Tangling that helped and it still does.

I am a CZT~2014. I figured the Universe planned my attendance there that June. My husband and I went together and he enjoyed his free time there, playing golf. It was our last motor trip together.

I just finished teaching a Zentangle workshop recently. It was very well received. That pleased me as I love to share Zentangle.”

~ Carol Schmidt, CZT – Waterloo, Ontario, Canada

If you would like to share your own experience for this series, please email me (linda [at] tanglepatterns [dot] com). You can make your story as long as or short as you like and if you wish your personal details to remain private, I will certainly honor that.

By publishing your “testimonials”, I’m hoping it will help spread the word about Zentangle to many others who can REALLY benefit from it. As the Zentangle founders say, “Anything is possible, one stroke at a time.”™

    Carol, I’m so sorry about your husband’s dementia. You’re fortunate in that you found an excellent care facility for him. It would be basically impossible to care for him at home.

    Thank you for sharing your story. Keep on tangling!
