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"

Bob's life spent silent, Al wants to talk...
Remembering stories, of Bob's life walk

Bob thinks of people he once knew well
Al's stories are jumbled, but only I can tell.

The words are there on the tip of Al's tongue
But Bob swallows hard , tears of life long ago.

  1. You write so beautifully and it stirs a lot of emotions. This must be so very hard for both of you.
