A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Static – Tension

Static …Alzheimer’s tension
No way …to shake away …blues
Exponential increase …constantly
Reality’s …missing …subdued
No respecter of time or place
Happens …  this only is true
Escalates …high as a kite!
Isolates …YOU!

When Mom is in an Alzheimer’s Stew (so to speak) and escalates, no fun is had by all!  I give her a medicine prescribed and she sleeps over 10 hours straight!  Scarey, but it works!  She’s only had that medicine a handful of times in past 6 months.  Thank goodness, most days we are able to distract her or tolerate,   OR  maybe we’re just getting TOUGH!

  1. My mother sometimes got very combative at one stage of her Alzheimer’s. It made her very hard to deal with. Now she is so flat that I almost miss the old combativeness.
