Sheri has learned over the many years she has been doing this, to compartmentalize her life. It is the only way she has been able to function. She still needs to work to provide for herself, she needs to tend to "the boys"the best she can. She must admit however, the walls dividing the compartments are starting to crumble, there is a haze in her head that she is having trouble seeing through. She knows there is a bridge to the other side, but she feels quite blinded by the fog right now. Thank you for all the prayers, they are keeping her afloat.
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.
