A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Chocolate Stash

When shopping for food
No matter where
You want chocolate
And lots to spare.

I say, we’ve plenty
You deny such
How could I know
So much.

You are a tad angry
This I see
Because you do not
Remember…oh me!

So we get more
Naturally
The stock pile rises
Surprisingly!

Mother loves chocolate bars….she consumes hundreds of calories daily. She eats little food, lots of chocolate. I was distraught at one point and in an Alzheimer’s seminar,  I asked Doctors about her eating and they said give her what she wants…I had tried to hold back the chocolate bars and she had lost weight,  so,  I just give her what she wants, putting down a feeding tube is not an option.   We siblings just want her  comfortable,  so chocolate bars it is.  Her Doctor visits show a normal glucose level, go figure.  When she has a glass of milk in one hand and a chocolate bar in the other, she’s a happy camper! …So you know I know my way to the grocery store blind folded. ….smile….sg
