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 feels, sometimes....
Like she is drowning , like she can't breathe
She is a participant in a race she can't win

Her waves of pain are too deep
The water is rushing in
She can't look forward
She can't look back

The only way to look up.

Chronicles 16:11

“Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always.”


  1. Amen! That is where we get our strength!

  2. As Al becomes ever more dominant in our loved ones. I found that not only was my wife losing herself but I too was losing myself and becoming nothing but a care giver. It has taken me close to a year since she went into a memory care unit to start finding and defining myself as something other than a caregiver. And as I find myself again,,I find the time to feel the deep deep pain of missing her. I hate this disease so much for what it does to our loved one and to us as caregivers. May you find peace in gods love.
