I'm on this one a little late, peeps (been kinda busy), but this article (click on the title above, to take you to the article, which purports that early diagnosis of AD saves money!) really sorta points out the obvious, don't you think?
And then I'd like to link you to an article which my friend Natalie has on her website: http://www.dailydementianews.com
The subject is narcissism, and it made me smile when I saw it, because a former SO accused me of being that way.
What? Just because I go to tan, like to look and dress nice, and think I'm "God's Gift To Women"????
That last was a joke: I don't think that at all. The best compliment I ever had about my looks was that I am "attractive in a John-Wayne kinda way". I have also been accused of looking like Jerry Springer, John Denver, Elton John and (sometimes) the late John Lennon.
But enough about me! What do you think of me????? Ha! Gotcha!
So anyway, no, I'm no narcissist. Not unless you count having to compensate for my homeliness by being clean and wearing clean (if not expensive) clothes.
Back to Natalie's site, though: Please scroll back up, click the link and bookmark her site? Hers is much more informative than mine, and she is a caregiver as well, so she has first-hand knowledge you may be able to use for your loved one.
The "Dog Days" came early this year here in Georgia, and the heat and humidity are just about unbearable, so wherever you are, I hope you're comfortable.
Don't forget the four-legged ones! They must be miserable as well, although some will end their misery by being euthanized.
Here's the link to click to feed and vote for Paulding Humane in the Shelter Challenge, and please let someone else know to do this, okay?
