Freed from Alzheimer's!!

I was reading a post from a lady in the group Alzheimer's and Dementia that I have the honor of being part of.  Her hubby just passed the other day, she used a word i believe in when we with the disease of Alzheimer's, dementia, parkinson's etc. he was FREED.  That is my belief.  You see we with these diseases are not in a battle, like it is said of those who die from their battle with cancer, oh no we are in a WAR, those that suffer know what I mean.  Alzheimer's lost the WAR it took his mortal body, but HE was FREED and won the right to be whoever he was and even more. He now joins the universal choir to sing and praise and hear the voice of the armies that have gone before him. Yes I envy him, I long to leave this hell I live in.

Constantly being asked how are you, are you ok, how do you feel, I understand how it is for you, the Hell you do I say.  Of course I am not ok, my hands can no longer paint, use power tools, build things, I have trouble talking right, I walk like a one legged antelope.  No I am not ok, this disease sucks big time.

To my friend I say, throw open your windows, clean the windows, clean the curtains and drapes, wash the bed sheets and floors.  Let the fresh air sweep away the stench you have lived with. Take a shower and was the dust of the war from your body, let the burden you have carried float down the drain, for you also have been FREED from you task.  It is now your time to live again as your hubby would tell you in his new found freedom.

Move on, do not morn, rejoice in the time you had with him that is what matters now. Live, Live, Live and be happy. Your burden is gone and Your HUBBY is VERY, VERY happy now in his new freedom.  The Voice of the universe will be his guide and friend from now on.

It has been awhile, but have not been quite up to par.  Guess all this moving, making improvements and the Holidays have taken their toll this year. To top it off, my computer moved and took everything with it. Emails, contacts, programs and my life. Oh well shit happens and seems to do so more these days. I am still breathing, I think. Going back into counseling to see if we can somewhat put this ½ brain cell I have in some order, lots of luck.

We have cat number 3, his name is Raptor.  He is an F1 male Savanah and has special needs, his rear legs are folded.  What a terror.  He was about 3weeks when we got him, not 3 months, went from 1 pound 2 oz to over 5 pounds now.  The other two love playing with him and him with them. They run all over chasing each other.

As for me I am very tired and not too much with it these days.  With loosing my emails and contacts well hard to respond to people.  If any of you wish to help me with my contacts send me an email:
jolynn1@cox.net.

Till next time take care.

Freedom for Malcolm Young and David Cassidy!

In the last week or so we loss to of Music's greats, who you may not know or remember.  Malcolm Young founder of AC/DC along with his brother formed the group.  Malcolm passed at the age of 64 after a battle with dementia for several years.  Remember the age 64.

David Cassidy, stepson to Shirley Jones and father Jack Cassidy, died this last week at the age of 67 due to complete organ failure, caused by the dementia he had suffered for years.

Both are now free from this disease and world and I for one am happy for them, struggles are over.
I highlighted their ages so that those "experts" who claim Alzheimer's and dementia and the likes as diseases of old age, might get their collected heads out of their asses. For years on this blog I have fought this draconian idea of only old humans get these diseases.  They whoever they are, claim that 60 is the new 40.  Well I guess dementia starts at forty.

I still stumble and bumble in my fight with Alzheimer's and Frontal temporal Dementia.  This is not a fun world nor is it filled with joy. For reasons not known to me, I have passed the life expectency for both diseases by 3+ years.  We lost Glenn Campbell approximately 3 years after his Alzheimer's was made public.

Where I am going with this is beyond my brain cell that I have left.  But I would bet David died from Alzheimer's, it shuts down all the organs a trade mark of the disease if you will.

Take care of your selves.
