A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Slipping Into Self

You slip into self
Talking
No one’s there
A dazed look
You mumble and stare
Then …walk away.
Watching a movie
Can’t …follow the plot
So …put in a …musical
You’ve watched …a lot
Part way through
You’re up …gone
Want out the door …on the lawn.
Baffles me …the way you think
Or what you do …or where you are
Staying positive …for me …is work
Staying negative …for you …bizarre!

Continuing the Alzheimer’s Trail with Mom is stressful at times. The Psychiatrist said to me, don’t take away her hope! Do I see and hear what she does …No! Should I tell her …probably not….I don’t always do it right, but God knows my heart. I’m still looking for the RAISING ALZHEIMER’S BOOK ….ANYBODY SEEN IT LAYING AROUND!?
