The Blurry world ( Alzheimer)

The mysterious road
Who understands if someone is slipping away
Like sand between your fingers
in that dark world.
Your not responding when i say my name
Whats going on inside you
The sounds seem far away
Your blue eyes staring at me
Look and see nothing
This is what we think
But is that so?
Questions kept on haunting my life
No answers.
Therefore in this blurry world
My hand touches your cheek because I know you feel me.

I have such moments that everything comes back

  1. Those who suffer from Alzheimer’s are now so many Mj.. And having had two in-laws who suffered from it, I know only two well how it feels for those who hold their hands.. My thoughts are with you on this.. As we reach out and touch their cheeks.. A poignant post my friend xx Much Love Sue xox

      Sue i had this for 10 years and every day i had something new to experience The backsack filled with new things Thats how i used to call this event I wish that i never get this.I really want to die before.

      • Yes I know my thoughts are similar to your own.. But then as I used to say to my hubby whose both parents suffered from it.. I think also that it is a blessing that for them they lived in the moment.. And didnt remember how once they had active minds.. For us as a family coping My hubby would take it in turns to sit all night with his mother and father as his sisters took it in turns.. They would rota themselves.. there were 6 children and all of them took turns.. They did this for 3 yrs My hubby working a day shift then travelling 70 miles to his Mum’s to return the next day.. They kept them at home as long as it was possible.. And then they went into a nursing home together .. And they spent 8 and 12 yrs there until they passed.. What strikes me MJ.. is that this disease strikes even the most active of brains.. You only have to look at the UK Woman Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, to see this..
        So my heart goes out to you for your 10 years… xxx Much love to you xxx Sue

        i understand 200% Sue
        we did with my bro and sis same as u did
        we took turns and after 3 months we were exhausted it was 24/day and had our work also.Not easy
        and indeed a know a docter and he died same time as my mom
        so working with the brain doesnot keep u from this horrible disease

    Went through this with my grandmother…simply horrible disease.

  4. Of all the misgivings that can befall the human body, alzheimers is one that not only deeply effects the patient, but all concerned as well.

    • chicasl10 says:

      the whole familie has pain with it. Its extreme to see how 24/24 a day some one depends on others Who has to live with it Docs say they dont know But how do they know that? im not confinced abt that. nope

  5. The Emu says:

    A world where memories are dimmed and distorted,
    a world where reality alters every second.
    You have my sympathy, its hard to understand the loneliness
    of someone close to you, suffering this debilitating illness.
    Ian

    A very touching post and written with compassion. My salutes to Sue’s hubby for the way he took care of his parents. Let’s wish all the noble care givers who do what they can for the unfortunate.
