While I normally make these “unusual holiday” posts lighthearted and perhaps even humorous, today we take a moment to the devastating disease that is Alzheimer’s.
Most of us know someone who have or had some form of this condition. For me it’s very personal because there is a significant history in both my mother’s and my father’s families. Because I’m, well, ME, I make jokes about being in “the home” and not knowing who my sister is (this is funnier if you know that my sister and I look nothing at all alike). But I do have moments when I worry about if this disease will affect me and/ or others in my family.
Lots of people have tried to tell me that “there will be a cure by the time I’m that age”. Whether or not that’s true remains to be seen. But that is little comfort for the folks already dealing with this condition in a loved one. so take a moment today to remember those people.
