Excerpt

It’s coming at us like a freight train. Not since the first small group of homo sapiens, somewhere in Africa 200,000 years ago, struggled for survival against the odds, have we, as a species, been in such danger.  How many were there, then? A couple of dozen? The very first ones, Adam and Eve and the hominid kids. Almost anything could have wiped them out, in Africa, with its super potent bugs: an outbreak of dengue fever, or malaria, or blackwater fever, or an infected tooth. Or death from drought, slow starvation on the parched veldt. A persistent big carnivore, or a pack of proto-hyenas might have finished them quickly, in a matter of days or even hours. End of story.  But they made it. Had strong antibodies, or found water, or reacted fast, jumped out of the way of tooth and claw, and climbed a tree. Alert. Maybe they had help from a Creator, maybe not. But at least they did their own part.  Not like us, sitting here on the railroad tracks all these centuries later, with our lazy backs turned, munching a double bacon cheeseburger and watching the Super Bowl on TV while destruction bears down. Oblivious, like the Romans of Juvenal’s day, “anxious for just two things: bread and circuses.” Oblivious to what? To ourselves, to Newton’s Third Law of Motion, and to the coming storm our very success has provoked. In other words, failing to understand and anticipate the idea of resistance.

Dealing with Early Onset Alzheimer's: Love, Laughter & Tears
Excerpt

DEDICATION

This book is dedicated to those caring for loved ones suffering from Alzheimer’s and Early Onset Alzheimer’s disease.

God bless you in your journey. My hope is that you’ll take something away from this book that brings a little peace in knowing you aren’t alone.

Special thanks to all those who helped me and Steve on our journey and to those caregivers that gave him special attention and care. My thanks and love are with you always.

Heartfelt thank you to my great friend, Clifton W. Anderson, who spent time reading my book after each iteration, reflecting on his own journey through similar circumstances. His feedback and suggestions were invaluable and much appreciated.

A portion of book proceeds will be donated to: The Phoenix Network and/or The Alzheimer’s Association

LOOKING BACK

Sometimes I look back and wonder how we didn’t see the signs of this disease starting. He didn’t repeat himself or ask the same question over and over again like so many do. Every once in a while, a memory will come to me and I think, yes, I bet that was a sign but at the time I hadn’t recognized it as such.

Coffee Shop

When we went to the donut shop for a coffee and bagel, Steve started telling me to go into the store to get it. We always went through the drive-through but now he was insistent on not going through the drive-through. I would say, “Come on, just go through the drive-through.” He would drive through, but I had to order from the passenger seat instead of him doing it.

When I think about it now, I’m sure it was because he was afraid of not remembering what to order
