This is my story. Instead of wallowing in bitterness and anxiety, I decided to document the journey I am in the midst of taking through the world of this mind wrenching disease. I weave in and out of chapters, reflecting on my childhood, family, work, early symptoms, music, and the flurry of tests that leads up to my diagnosis. I write about the irony of caring for victims of dementias for over twenty five years and then wind up with the disease. The focus of the book is to make people aware this disease can turn your life upside down at any age, without prejudice. I want to make people laugh through their tears and bring awareness that this is not just an old persons disease.
