A journey in time with Alzheimer's

 Summer of 2012, I started writing poems/prose to de-stress. Mother had lived with us since Dec. 2011, and I needed to vent! The poems helped, but I needed to share , so after much research (my brother  had a blog, and it intrigued me, thanks Dave!)  , I decided to start this blog. Never in my life had I ever done anything like this, my computer skills left much to be desired (still do, but I’m learning ),   nevertheless, there I went, and I’ve not looked back! It has been so much fun. Hearing from so many all over the world has been cathartic! I thank you the readers of Alzheimer’s Trail for keeping me alive. The core of my messages remains the same. Alzheimer’s rips people’s lives from them. I do what I can to get the word out and support research. My Mother is in a nursing home now, and I’m thankful for the caring hands and hearts  who surround her.   I’m thankful to  my husband and son for supporting me. Without their help,   couldn’t have kept Mother at home  as long as we  did.   I like being around her. I hate the path she’s on, and I want to make her days  easier.   Again  THANKS TO YOU THE READERS,  IT TOUCHES MY HEART KNOWING YOU’RE OUT THERE!
