Where in the World is Joe?

Remember that kids book: "Where in the World is Waldo"? we still have a copy from when my kids were kids and now for the grandkids. You know I still have the damndest time finding him even after 30+ years and who knows how many times of going over the book.

Well that is how I feel about me now, i do not hear words right anymore, mess up on the words i want to ses  get lost in conversations, forget what it is i want to do  or am too do. Again a week ago the High Flying Potocny did it again and managed to launch himself in the middle of the night out of bed. This time i landed between the nightstand and paper shredder flat on the old back. Messed up my left upper arm, left thigh and bruised the hell out of my ribs on the right side. Yes ENTER THE DREDDED BED RAIL. wife is not going to have anymore of this. knowing me I will just grab the top of the rail and go for a lond distance flight before crash landing. I am even having a hard time answering emails, taking way to long, just outright forget to. I am slowly shutting down some of the sites I use and post on, cannot keep up with it all. This blog is becommming  dificult enough to deal with. My will power and mental capacities are starting to loose the battle as I knew they would, but that still pisses me off.

Till we all meet again at Joe's Bar & Grill.

God Bless & Keep You & This Country of Ours!!!!!

Fun Times With Alzheimer's.

I attend a mens meeting on Monday nights and they are all aware that I have Alzheimer's. We had sort of a celebration for one of our members. In sharing one of the guys turns to me and says Joe you are a lot nicer since you got Alzheimer's. I about feel out of chair, we could not stop laughing. So see there is fun here in this world at times. When you have friends that are not afraid to joke with you, especially since you do yourself.

But my sleeeeping habits are getting really bad. I once again managed to through myself out of the bed. I landed this time between the night stand and the paper shredder. How I managed that feat is beyond me. My body this time took a beating. I have this really nice long round knot and bruise on on leg, one to match on my shoulder and my ribs took a beating to. I think the other guy won this one. I am starting to think that staying calm and keeping my mouth shut and not letting this condition completely control me is starting to take its toll a different way. But I survived long enough for the wife to order a bed rail for my side. We will see if that works, I hope so, I cannot take many more of these 2+ foot drops to the floor, they hurt and I am old.

Everyone stay well till the next time.

My Soap Box!!

things seem to be getting more mixed up. I sure am clumbseyer. We bought a new bed, one of those memory foam jobs, well with the new foundation and the mattress, I have to climb and roll into it, to high to lift this ass of mine up. So my darling wife bought me a two step stool (small but sturdy) it helps but I still have some problems. Last night I unplug a razor on my night stand and turned around to get in bed. WELL, MR. Acrobat here, took one step hit the step stool and planted my face directly on the mattress. problem was the rest of me was hanging off the bed. See there is fun having Alzheimer's, at times.

In just regular conversation I get all mixed up, use the wrong words, words sort of dribble out of my mouth and I forget in the middle of things what it is we are talking about. What frustrates me the most is when involved in talking about one thing with people I can concentrate and articulate (there's a word for you) myself very well, but do not let me get distracted then I am lost.

I am starting to forget what I had for breakfast or llunch now, or if i have even had them. It just bites my butt how fast one can forget something, that was said or took place 5 minutes or so before.

I will tell you this I personally am outraged at all this crap on the Internet and what I get in my email about The Lady that Reversed her Alzheimer's in 37 days, Or the new cure for Alzheimer's found by a nobel prize winner that has been surpressed and the other shit that puts everything back to what it was. I say kiss off, if these things WERE true why is it then a new person every 70 seconds joins this World? because these claims may help some and I say some for a short time but have no lasting affect, accept to wear off and leave the person right where they would have been anyway and now more confused because of it. I am thinking about getting a wagon and a horse and start traveling this country town to town peddeling Dr. Joe's cure all oil, seems we have moved back to the Old West times. Sorry folks it will not only be .10 cents, 1/10th of a dollar, but hay costs alot so it will be $19.95 a bottle, but wait if you buy when I say to, I will double the deal and give you two bottles of bull shit, no shipping and handeling, fresh made from the back of my wagon, now how can you beat that deal.

Now all you pervaders of new cures and reversal drugs and ways to stop this disease, send me your hate mail so I can send you a free bottle, hurry this offer maybe taken off the internet at anytime. But make sure you press the orange button at the bottom to get your FREE 30 day supply.

Till next we meet, be good to yourselves.

God Bless & Keep You & This Country of Ours!
