If ever there was a season that holds the emotions too near
It's the season of "holy jolly," the season of Christmas cheer.
Yet I am one among many, for whom the season is confettied with tears
The pain and the strife of everyday life has many left deep wounds through the year.
Yet we all have so much in common, we share pain we share hope and despair
We are in fact "going through the motions", it is just hidden in "Happy New Year".
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.
