i appreciated reading your personal story, too. Thank you so much for sharing it with us.
I am very sorry for your loss of your beloved Great Grandmother.
She was obviously special to you, and you to her because she chose to share things--that no one else knew--with you.
Your Great Grandmother was looking out for you.
It wasn't too long ago, was it?, when Alzheimer's disease was referred to as "old-timer's" disease?
People generally didn't understand Alz's and didn't recognize (all) the effects of Alz's such as "wandering" and depression and anxiety -- there was no information publicly available about its symptoms or how to help persons with this disease.
I don't think doctors understood it either, so how could family members have understood it?
A lot has changed in the past 25+ years since your Great Grandmother suffered with Alz's.
But we are still learning. There is so much to learn.
Thank God for the Campbell family for sharing a different way to help a loved one with Alz's. Also--how to help ourselves as caregivers.
It's really wonderful that Glen Campbell's film helped you to look at life and Alzheimer's disease differently.
Glen said in the film that he wanted this documentary to help others--and look, it already has helped--you--and how many other persons after they watched I'll Be Me on Sunday night?
(It will be broadcasted several more times this week; in fact, another broadcast has been added to CNN's schedule for July 4th.)
Be well, Macosta45, and please keep in touch, okay?
