Will the Famous People in your life get Alzheimer’s?
Chances are almost 100% that you or someone you know will develop Alzheimer’s. How would you feel if your spouse, child, mother, father, best friend were just lost to you? The years of fustration, the anguish are REAL for both the patient and the caretakers.
“People think it’s just forgetting your keys, she says. Or the words for things. But there are the personality changes. The mood swings. The hostility and even violence. Even from the gentlest person in the world. You lose the person you love. And you are left with the shell… And you are expected to go on loving them even when they are no longer there. You are supposed to be loyal. It’s not that other people expect it. It’s that you expect it of yourself. And you long for it to be over soon.”
― Alice LaPlante, Turn of Mind
