    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...
