I found your poem about Alzheimer's disease very interesting. It flows with deep feeling and concern for your Dad who suffered the disease. i understand you must have experienced many patients with this disease, as a geritatric nurse. Thank you for sharing this important issue. Best wishes!

This is a most unfortunate time for children, particularly if you are a geriatric nurse. To see the lucidity drain out of a parent must be soul destroying, they are here in body, but the essence is gone. So so, sad, beautifully written my friend, blessings Roy

I know just how heart-breaking it can be to have a family member suffering from Alzheimer's. It's a really scary prospect to lose your personality. I thought this piece was well written and I enjoyed reading it.

God bless you for all the wonderful work you did. In this age of Corona, I can't stop thinking about our health care workers.

You've really nailed the stages of Alzheimer's. There was once a woman in my life who suffered from it. In the early stages, some of her antics were fun, but at the end it was just so sad. Very nicely written. Hugs, Lou

This is a good poem that makes it happy in the beginning then shifts to sad in the end. Alzheimer's disease is something sad that loved ones or even ourselves has to go through. I think that it is good that you are helping people by doing your career.

This is a very interesting write that deals with a very serious issue which you've take a lighthearted approach to. You deserve a lot of credit for that because most people realize what a toll that can take on loved ones who take care of people with this terrible disease. The writing is ingenious and the picture is adorable. Have a blessed day.

Ha I like the way you make this into something fun. Obviously it would be an enjoyable experience but it's worse for the loved ones around them who see their grandparent lose their memory. Thanks for sharing this and have a great day

Have a great day and God bless.

I enjoyed reading your poem. Its flow reminds me a little of the thought process of an Alzheimer's brain, a little scattered sort of. It's a horrible disease, but I think more for the family and friends around than for the person her/himself. They just don't know that they don't know. Yet, they know something is not right.

This poem in its fragmented language captures that feeling of incomplete and broken experience of life someone has when they endure this disease. Waking up and not knowing where you are. Who those people are who visit you. Recalling distant memories in childhood experiences but not recent events. My mother died of Alzheimer's so I know what it's like. you lose your relationship with someone you love. estory
