I Know!

"The robb'd that smiles,
steals something
from the thief."
       William Shakespeare




I look into her eyes


I see myself


She looks into my eyes


She sees a stranger


It's me Mom


I know


Alzheimer's steals.

  4. :-(. I'm so sorry! So incredibly sorry. My gran had alzheimers and I once wrote how sure my daughter had cancer, but cancer never took her identity and her memories, but alzheimers left my gran a mere empty shell. It is absolutely heartbreaking! Prayers and thoughts!

  5. I really think alzheimers would be much harder than what we are going through...it is all hard ..to see our parents fail...those that held us up for so long...it just makes me so sad. and yet we must endure for their sake...

  6. This is one insidious disease. From my experience with it seems like it hurts the loved ones more. I lost my parents early in life, but not to a thief like this.

  7. I know what you are going through. My Grandma that raised me had it and I will always remember my last phone conversation with her..."It's me Rebecca"... Grandma, "OK if you say so... who are you?" Still brings tears to my eyes.

  10. I, too, am sorry. I'm sure it isn't much help, but it's all I can give. I pray God will be merciful to you and your mother.

  11. One of the worst events in a life is to see a loved one lose health/mind.

  12. How very difficult for you! I too feel very sorry.

    I am watching my heighbour's husband lose his memory. It's painful to see. He still lives at home but now believes his wife is his sister. And he is beginning to hallucinate. It's so sad to see a good person's memory and personality disappear.
