Sheri is enjoying her new apartment home. Although much the same size has her little house she had rented for the last 5 years, after losing their family home to what she calls Alzheimer's foreclosure, the apartment has more of an open floor plan making it feel bigger. Sheri is realizing through the down sizing process, that there is something very freeing in not being tied to her stuff. Her clutter bug nature, seems to have been replaced with appreciation for a calm breathable space, something she really has never experienced. There is something comforting in knowing all her possessions are within these 4 walls. Now she just needs Bob and "Al" to figure out which is the head of the bed. :)
Store up your treasures in heaven and not on earth.
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.
