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.

Livng with Bob and "Al"

For several years Sheri has been trying to figure out why every coffee pot they have, over flows. Sheri feels quite silly for not having noticed this before, but she figured out yesterday that after Bob fills the back tank with the 12 cups of water (as much as the pot will hold) "Al" then puts about two inches of water in the bottom of the pot and sets in back on warming part of the coffee maker. Well when the full 12 cups drips down the next morning... that extra 2 inches of water is what is over flowing the pot. You know Sheri must have too much on her plate that it took her this long to see the extra water at the bottom of the pot! (but in my defense the pot has a metal band around it  about 2 inches up, the pot is clear and so is the water)  :)

  1. Hi Sheri,

    We recently came across your Living in the Shadows of Alzheimer's blog.

    Earlier this year we launched a new website called that provides practical information on Alzheimer's disease for patients and carers.

    We really like your blog and we are looking for contributors.

    Would you be interested in writing a short article (300-600 words) for our website?

    Perhaps something about your own experiences with Alzheimer’s, or the advice that you would give to people who have been either directly or indirectly affected by the disease.

    We hope that you will find our new site useful and will consider sharing some of it with your readers.

    Best wishes,


    The Practical Alzheimer’s Team
