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 had learned the hard way that if she was out and about with "the boys", to find a family restroom for "Al". She has, on more than one occasion had to ask a stranger to see if they can guide "Al" out of the restroom. Now however it appears even in a family/handicap restroom, finding the way out is causing "Al" much distress. After what Sheri thought was a very long trip in the bathroom she finally opened the door to find "Al" standing there with is arms crossed in front of him. Sheri said are you ok? To which "Al" replied with frustration in his voice "I couldn't find you."
Sheri hates this disease.
