Those wishing to nominate a caregiver can register at www.tycaregivers.com until December 31, 2016. Winners will be rewarded with a credit to PeachDish, a meal delivery company, which will help reduce the stress of planning meals for their families.



The full press release is included below, for your reference. Please let me know if you have any questions!



Best,

Alzheimer's and Me!

I have not really written how me and Alzheimer's are getting along of late. Well, i am able to put together a post in my wandering brain cells; but then I have a very difficult time getting it down to my fingers to type.  Once I manage to get my fingers ready with the post, then the problem of getting them to type is all together another story. When all is ready to go, I have to remember to get to my computer and then to the post section, many is the time when I finally get there everything else is gone out the window.  I sleep a great deal during the day and night, I am getting more and more confused and forgetful, wow what a surprise.

I was sitting this morning on the bench we have near the front window and staring at the area rug on the floor.  We have had this rug for maybe 5 years or so and I just noticed and told Lynn that there was green in the rug. She sat next to me and said that was why she was shocked when I said that I like the rug.  See I do not like green on furniture, drapes, rugs, walls or clothing, GREEN is for plants, grass and money only.

I watched 60 minutes this weekend, because they were having the Alzheimer's study breakthrough. What a waste the information they gave has been posted on my blog and others years ago. We know that there is a mutated gene that is carried by the people in that town in Columbia and it means Alzheimer's is coming to you 100%.  Dr. Oz I think it was a couple of years ago had a family from Michigan I think, that carry the gene, six siblings were on and five had the signs already in their 40's and the one sister was ok and caring for them.

I was happy to hear them admit that amyloid beta plaques and tau tangles, when pressed by the reporter, may not prove to be the problem and they will have waisted 15+ years of research. Wow where have I heard that before.  When, can someone tell me that these so called brilliant people will get the heads out of their collective asses and start looking for the real cause?

Well HAPPY HOLIDAYS to you all.

God Bless and Keep You and This Country of Ours!

Marty Schottenheimer battling early-onset Alzheimer's

Remember the lady basketball coach who just died from Alzheimer's. The press was all over HER story from the start. God she was just a saint. Well how many of you heard about Marty? I live in San Diego County, where he was coach for the Chargers, not much said about it. Can I say SEXIST media, or am I politically incorrect.  Well if so to fricken bad. He was a winning coach and a very smart man. I am not singing his praises personally I did not like him and am not by any means a Chargers fan. What I am saying, I think is that his battle is just as important as anyone else's and because of his status it should be covered just as Coach Pat Summit was!

I also have been reading a lot of posts on new studies, cures, causes, etc. Boy some of you out there are repeating OLD NEWS, that went nowhere. There is no diet, no pill no anything that stops or cures Alzheimer's. What is it that you do not understand? Testy yes I am, tired of all the bull shit being spewed out. The Snake Oil Peddlers. Remember Coconut Oil, the cure, I said BS when I first was told of it, well it wall rampit on the net, have you heard of anyone cured from it? The answer I will help you is NO. Not a rap on Coconut Oil, it has its' qualities, but curing Alzheimer's or any form of dementia, sorry not so. I beg you all do not fall for the diets, drinks and other crap being promoted as a cure.  If you pay attention I think eating potato chips will be either the next cause or cure for Alzheimer's. Seems everything now is linked to or is a cause of the disease or it can cure it.

I VOTE FOR TOLIET PAPER AS THE ROOT CAUSE OF DEMENTIA!!!!!!
All in favor raise your hand.

Another Note an email I just received:

My ego booster today, which happens to be my 43rd anniversary of my 39th birthday. Yes I was born on this date in 1944, not found under a rock.

Until next time, take care of yourselves.
