On Thursday Mom was diagnosed with early Alzheimer's Disease. It wasn't a surprise. Actually for me the diagnosis was validating, and from my perspective a bit "freeing" for Mom as well. She took the news better than either Tom or I had anticipated...at first.
I don't fully understand her not wanting to tell anyone.
It is the opposite for me...I need the support of my close friends and my family as I take the first steps on this journey to the unknown.
this blog will tell my story....
