Alzheimer’s sucks

*This is not your typical post about our children. Nothing cute or brag worthy. The photos won’t make you gush with joy. Check back another day for that kind of post *

Alzheimer’s sucks. It sucks the life out of someone. Alzheimer’s sucks the life out of a person slowly. You don’t know when it begins, you won’t even notice when it starts, nobody really does. Alzheimer’s just takes it’s sweet little {long} time sucking any resemblance of what the person used to be. You could meet the person in the beginning of the disease, middle or end and not recognize them at any given time. Alzheimer’s sucks.

Alzheimer’s sucks the life of the caregiver as well. The caregiver has to watch Alzheimer’s deteriorate a person little by little and leave in its place a helpless confused child like person. Said caregiver in the meantime is having their life sucked away as they spend day after day taking care of every little detail that was once shared with the Alzheimer’s patient. Alzheimer’s sucks.

Alzheimer’s sucks away the memory of the patient and those around them. Year after year loved ones who once shared memories of the Alzheimer’s patient now find themselves making new memories. Those memories aren’t quite as pleasant as ones previously made. The new memories are full of frustration and lost thoughts. Alzheimer’s sucks.

Alzheimer’s sucks away any expectations previously had by those around the Alzheimer’s patient. Dreams of retirement, travel and car shows with grandad are replaced with finding a day care program or eventually a home. Alzheimer’s sucks.
