It's All In How You Hold It

Two years ago, I had a conversation with my friend, Jay, that changed my life. Here is some of what we talked about. I asked him, What did it feel like to hear those three words—You Have Alzheimer’s? “We (he and his wife) never really did have a moment of denial. I’d accepted the Alzheimer’s Disease diagnosis when the doctor put me on Aricept. That was the time of shock and relief. Finally, we have an answer. We never thought of Alzheimer’s, but it was great to know that it’s not something mysterious anymore. It’s just this thing that five million other Americans have.” When Jay and his wife left his doctor’s office, they went straight to a bookstore to learn more about Alzheimer’s Disease.
