About 2 months ago, Sheri was told by one of Bob's doctors that they needed to lower the dose of his antidepressant. It had to do with some new health guidelines for someone his age. Sheri is concerned because his mood is starting to reflect the change. Sometimes Sheri is confused by guidelines designed for the general public. In Sheri's opinion keeping Bob and "Al" as happy and comfortable as possible is her only goal. People forget Alzheimer's is a terminal illness, it is not going to get better, so why not make it as easy as possible.
Sheri hates this disease.
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.
