As The Door Closes.

sounds like a soap opera, but that is what is happening to my life. My eldest and her group were here the other day and when I said goodbye to my granddaughert who is 9, she aaid grandpa why don't you call me that name anymore when we leave and i did not know what she was talking ablut and asked her, she said oh it is ok grandpa, you just don't remember things anymore. That kind of hit home as to she understands and can see the changes taking palace. My daughter and I think it was the same day told me she missed me and i was really lost on that one. I just looked at her and she told me she misses how we would jokw around and that i do not do that much anymore but she understood that things were getting harder for me. It almost felt like she said goodbye while she still could. Right now i feel like shit and am not in a good place, which seems to becoming normal. Oh well It is What it Is.

God Bless & Keep You & This Country of Ours!

I stumbled upon your blog today as I was searching for blogs on Alzheimer's..... I have nothing to say ... I wish I can give you a hug and assure you that your family loves you and will always love you wether you remember them or not ...

And they will always keep the good memories. As the saying in England goes ... "Keep Calm and Carry On". God bless you.

Joe....I have been following your blog ever since I saw you on the HBO series on Altzheimers. My Father,and my ROCK, was diagnosed in 2008. Also I love the theme song you use for your page..no other song can mean so much..and this is my Father's favorite song...so Thank you!! Also...just a word for you...I will continue to follow your blog. I was in tears over your story. Especially when you said when you finally have enough,that you have it all planned out what to do and how to end it. I know how you feel. My Father felt the same way. He however is in a nursing home,because my Mother can not deal with this disease..even her husband of over 57 years. I find it hard to believe that she didn't try and keep him home longer. I have watched him go back and forth from the local Mental/Behavioral Health ward and so far,2 nursing homes. He still knows my Son( who he literally raised)..but others..including me...sadly..he doesn't hardly know me anymore. My Mother,he knows a bit,how much I do not know. I so wish there was something they could do for wonderful people like YOU and my Father. I applaud your courageos fight so far..and if I know you from your blogs..you will continue to fight. I know your blog is reaching out to others..I am one..there are so many more. Please keep this going for as long as you as able. My thoughts and prayers and love go out to YOU and your family and loved ones!! JOE...you are a brave and amazing man. hang in there..you are loved!!!! My name is Jody,and my Father's name is David!!
