Alzheimer’s Disease

Ms Mandi Photo 1

If anyone is looking to watch a great movie….I recommend “Still Alice”.  It’s a beautifully written movie about a college Professor who develops Alzheimer’s Disease.  It’s a touching story of one woman’s struggles, while losing her memory and eventually her mind.  She has a rare form of the disease that is genetically carried on to her children.

I can personally relate to her story because my grandmother developed the disease when she was in her sixties.  It’s very sad to watch, as a most intelligent mind starts to forget even the simplest task, such as trying finding their bathroom in their own home. They know their  minds are deteriorating, but there is nothing they can do but try to cover it up.

If you or someone you know is severing with Alzheimer’s Disease, please feel free to comment here.  The more we can talk about it, the more we can find a cure to this horrible disease.
