Sometimes thoughts can reap havoc on the inner mind. The more I read of those who have Alzheimers, the more depressed I become. I wish it hadn't happened to me!

Fellings of frustration , anger , fear, envelope me at times

Sadness,longing for the way I used to be, invade my mind

I cannot change what's happening to me, nor can my family

On ward I trudge, trying to find
strength to carry on and face what IS

I'm trying make each day count for

With trembling hands,I reach out for guidence from my Lord, family and friends

I have just begun this journey of :

" The Beginning of The End "

MaryGrace your dear words dig right into my soul deeply. I pray that they will find a miracle I honestly do. I believe in miracles and know you do too. Shall we all pray for a miracle for you, our God is holding you in the palm of His hands. Don't ever let go MaryGrace just keep holding on.

Sincerely and from my heart these words are sent and as we all know your heart is filled with the blessing of Hope.

Alzheimer's is such a dreaded disease and so heartbreaking for the one who is suffering and for their family, too. I'm sorry you're having to go through this, MaryGrace, but please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Many times, symptoms differ (some worse for some than others). Stay positive, despite the challenges, and you'll, in some way, beat it at its own game!!

Best wishes,
