Today Is Mine -Welcome To My World

Yes today is mine, tomorrow may not be. This road that i now travel has exit rammps, but who knowws where they lead so I stay on it. One may be the one I take that ends in a few steps and I am gone, not in a physical sense, but me who I am will be gone. That is the nature of this fricken disease, you never know when that moment is going to arrive. I belong to a 12 step program for 34 years that hass done its best to teach me to live one day at a time, that now has an entire different meaning to me today, for now it is hour to hour. Went shopping with the Mrs. last night, got some soda, candy (i am a push over for that), paper towels and a bunch of toliet paper. You see we keep the sanitaaation departmentt working. Probably took all of 45 minutes, I was totally exhausted from it. So there you have it, a day with Alzheimers you never know when you are going to disappear into the realm of whatever, not knowing anyone or anything, pretty damn scarry isn't it. In the words of Elvis Presley (The King), WELCOME TO MY WORLD, WON'T YOU COME ON IN.

I hope you had a little fun on our outing and seeing other people. It was nice to get out of the house with you.(Without everybody else)
Love
