    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...

    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...

    Here I Am!
