Did that word give you a bit of trouble?
It's the word statistics re-invented by me.
I do that a lot. Make up words, I mean.
I think it's also a sign of my dementia, that I do.....
One day at work I couldn't think of the word disposable, so I came up with my own word: throw-a-way-able.
I wonder how many other Alzheimer's "sufferers" do this?
Here's a sufferer:
That guy's really "suffering", isn't he? You can tell, right?
But with Alzheimer's, it isn't so easy to tell, Kiddos!
Because we look and (sometimes) act "normal".
If you were to see me at the grocery store you'd say to yourself, "That guy sure is ugly. but he looks normal!"
Okay, okay. I didn't mean to give you remedial Alzheimer's Education, just needed to make that point, thank you>
What I mean by "Statistifications" is that I just wanted y'all to know that this site averages 57 hits a day and we've raised close to 50 bucks, just by y'all clicking on the ads! And that money goes where?
Right! To my local Humane Society and to Alzheimer's Research!
(Sorry, I used to teach high school English and I have a tendency to "check" class by asking a question at the end of a sentence, so excuse me, please)
Since I can no longer take care of my patients, it gives me a sense of accomplishment to know that in just 6 months I have managed to reach so many of you, and gotten the word out that "Early Onset" is not an automatic death sentence!
It means we can still get turned around, dammit!
My friend Mike put it best when he said, "I hope I can stay in Early Onset forever." And Dear Reader, Mike is 72 years of age and writes like a MoFo! I absolutely love reading his words and he is such an inspiration!
So.... thanks for being here these past 6 months watching and reading about my deterioation, and stay tuned..... this is one wild ride!
Enjoy the song! Summer's on the way and I don't wanna see any bikini lines! *HA-HA*
