Changes

I sit on the couch, staring out the picture window across the room from me.

Thinking. I am sad and adjusting.

I found out recently that I’m in the early stages of Alzheimers. It became more apparent this morning when I was reading through blogs. I always have several done that I can pick from to post. Others I write and post when completed.

Anyway, it became apparent that my Alzheimer’s occasionally affects my writing. There I sat, reading and rereading, trying to make a change in one, but couldn’t come up with a way to change it that suited me.

I will definitely continue to write blogs. Anxiety is one of the first symptoms of Alzheimer’s.  My meds keep my stomach upset most of the morning. The anxiety keeps me from driving at this time.

So, basically, I will blog what I find in our 2-acre yard like I have been doing. I am knitting a lot, making diamond-shaped washcloths for Christmas presents.

Anyway, I will continue to write blogs. I enjoy them too much not to.

The rose above is a family heirloom that grows in my butterfly garden. My great grandfather gave it to my grandmother when my mother was born in 1929.

p.s. I heard about two positive results this afternoon about coconut oil and its affects on Alzhiemers.
You might research it. I haven’t had time yet.

Unusual Weather

We had an odd combination of weather a few days ago, with large snow flakes and light rain falling in the morning for an hour or so.

My life is in the process of changing … so …  my creativity will probably change to a certain extent too.

Now is a sad time for me. I’m adjusting from just finding out I have Alzheimers. I will be 67 years old on May 15th.

My mother has Alzheimers and lives at home with a rotation of three care givers.

My father passed away from Alzheimers  in 2003. He was the electrical engineer for a local coal mine. His mother passed away from Alzheimers when I was in high school. They lived across from the high school, and I used to eat lunch with her.

My grandfather on my mother’s side was a physics professor for the Rolla School of Mines in Missouri. His Alzheimers was slow.

I so enjoy being outside and blogging. I plan to continue. My style might change somewhat. My grammar may not always be the best. Either way — I will enjoy, and I hope you enjoy my finds too …  so the subjects that find me won’t feel left out.
