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 is missing the days when she could rely on Bob for strength and a calm spirit.

  1. Your simple sentence highlights one of the greatest tragedies of EOAD. My wife and I always supported each other in so many ways. Sometimes I think she hesitates to turn to me for help now with her own problems because she is trying to relieve me of some of the ordinary burdens of life. Sometimes I get myopic about my EOAD and don't even see that she's struggling. I don't know how successful I am, but I'm trying to be more aware of this problem. I don't want her to feel so alone even before she is alone.
