    Beginning To Understand Just Now

    I watched some educational dvd's about Alzheimer's disease finally. I now understand a lot more than I did. It's very sobering. It's not just about forgetting. In the beginning it is, in stage one. As it progresses parts of your brain begin to shut down and the person disappears...

    Are You In There Somewhere? I Miss You!

    I miss my grandmother very much these days but the saddest thing is I miss her most when I am with her.  I spent many days taking care of her but taking care of her physically seems easy compared to trying to care for her emotional needs. She is just so unhappy and mean. She...

    Here I Am!

    My grandmother's fight with Alzheimer's has lasted for years. It mainly affected her ability to speak, as slowly but surely it became harder for her to communicate with us. She remembered all of our faces and could understand us when we spoke to her, but when it came to having...

    Looks can change, someone's personality not so much. Good looks can get you though a few nights a good personality will get you though a few years.
