Where’s My Purse?
Is a recounting of the journey through Alzheimer’s with my mother. Albeit this disease is heartbreaking, I approached the circumstances from a positive angle – celebrating what was right with Mom’s world, instead of what wasn’t.
Diagnosis: Alzheimer’s disease. Now what?
Each and every day millions of individuals are facing this exact situation and have no idea what to do. Their easiest course of action is to scour the Internet in search of information, when all they really want is to hear from someone who’s actually been through it. I understand – I’ve been there. Despite my best efforts to deal with everything I made plenty of mistakes, the largest of which, was feeling sorry for myself. My mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s; it wasn’t about me. I decided to approach the situation from a very different perspective, and because of that newfound positivity, I was better equipped to handle everything.
Join me while I walk you through my very private journey with JoAnn, my mother and best friend. I’m hopeful that by offering you the truth about my experiences, as well as suggestions on how to exercise humor and grace, it may help you to better cope with your loved one’s behavioral changes.
Perspective is everything and altering mine was just what the doctor ordered.
