This blog is about life with my husband who was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer's and Frontal Lobe Dementia in 2008. He was 64 at the time although now, knowing more about the disease, Alzheimer's was present many, many years ago, which is why early detection is so important. As you read the blog the character"Al" that I created in 2008 represents the way that Alzheimer's is invading our daily lives.

Living with Bob and "Al"

Sheri has been observing herself again. She is realizing this part of the journey is quite different than some others in regards to the death of a spouse. Bob had not been living with Sheri for a year and 4 months. Coming home alone from the memorial service and each day since has not had the feeling of coming home to an empty house because her house has been empty already for long time. She has already done the "remove items belonging to him process." Some might think this might make it easier... Sheri thinks not. She has been grieving the loss of Bob for a very long time, the only difference is now "Al" is gone too, he was her coping mechanism. Sheri has no distraction from her grief. Everyone says it will take time, she knows that is true, but right now time is standing still.
Sheri needs to pause, praise and pray.

Living with Bob and "Al"

Sheri has been trying hard to get out with her camera and commune with nature in hopes of getting some relief from the feelings she is having. She knows that is probably unrealistic, but it is hard to work and have these overwhelming feelings sitting on her heart. and it is apparently even harder to keep them from seeping out the corner of her eyes.
