J: My frustration level is rising with this damn disease. I took GRB to a funeral this week of a man who died suddenly. This man was in his 60s and a well loved teacher and father of six. His job on this earth appeared to be far from over. And there sat GRB. "God - what are you thinking? GRB is ready to meet his maker. " Is what I wanted to scream
Last night at the Sunday night dinner I patiently fed Sweet T, having to coax her mouth open like a recalcitrant child. And agin I thought "Lord - take her home. Her life's quality has evaporated".
Yet they remain.
So, what can a do with all of my frustration? I guess I just need to redouble my efforts to help find a cure. My commitment to donating a portion of each of my real estate sales seems paltry in the face of the daunting challenge of finding a cure. But it's something. What else can I do? I can encourage EVERYONE to donate. Much like the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, I have yet to encounter anyone who hasn't be affected in some way by Alzheimer's Disease. It's everywhere and getting worse every day. WE NEED TO FIND A CURE. You do not want to watch your loved ones waste away. It's awful. I'm fed up with it. Go to www.alz.org/donate Donate today. Let's find a cure NOW. Harrummph
