Alzheimer’s Disease
Where is my car?
Mom, I just told you
I sold your car
to a really nice man
who came from afar.
Don’t you remember?
I’m hungry!
Mom, I just told you
at a half past eight
you ate.
Don’t you remember?
Where is your sister?
Mom, I just told you
she is working.
She’ll be here Sunday.
Don’t you remember?
Where is my dog?
Mom, I just told you
I gave him away
to a sweet couple
just the other day.
Don’t you remember?
Where is your father?
Mom, I just told you
Dad passed away
only yesterday.
Don’t you remember?
Where is Debbie?
Mom, I just told you
I’m here beside you
holding you, kissing you.
Don’t you remember?
Mom, don’t forget me!

Your last line got to me. "Mom, don't forget me!" Because my mom did not have a clue who I was in the end. So difficult when you can see them slipping away into a void and there is nothing you can do. It is hard on everyone, my heart goes out to you...

Be always safe,

Oh Deborah, so beautifully written and oh so true. I'm sorry you and I had to go through this awful illness, but we became much better people for it. Didn't we?

I can fully relate to Alzheimers and what she and you are going through. I was diagnoised with Alzh in 2007 . I'm doing much better at present due to the medications I'm taking. (Namenda 10 mg and Exelon 4.5 mg twice daily) My mememory is great! MY husband and oldest son also have Alzh.. Blessings to you....M
