I was born 11/17/1944, you do the math. I have been diagnosed with AD & FTD. I run my blog to tell what it is like in This World, that I call My World.

I have been taking care of my mother since May of 2005. I guess the best way to understand the reason for my blog is to go back and read one of my very first posts Judy’s Dementia. I am also here to be a voice for other caregivers and to help with research and support for anyone taking care of an elderly parent. My goals are simple: 1) To share my mothers story with the world 2) To let...
