I'm back

Can you believe that I am posting within a month of my last post?  I can't.  I have tried to get on several times but the thoughts just weren't coming together.  In the past week three more people I know have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.  It is just everywhere.  I am glad they are getting diagnosed and the help they need, but I wish it wasn't happening so frequently.  Next month is Brain Awareness month so you will probably be seeing more things about Brain diseases in the news.

I decided to go off one of my medicines.  It was to help me with my concentration.  It was working, but it was a hassle to get and the stress of getting it was too much for me to take anymore so I decided to go off of it.  Now I find myself being more exhausted because it takes so much more of my mind to focus and concentrate.  One trade off for another I guess. has added my blog to their list of "Best Alzheimer's Blog for 2018". They sent a badge for me to insert into this blog, but I haven't been able to make it work.  I'll keep trying.

On another note, my dear friend, Lisa Genova, who wrote Still Alice, has a new book out about ALS.  The book is "With Every Note Played". I urge you to read it -- you won't be sorry.
