I watched Still Alice yesterday, turns out it’s a good movie that was apparently a bad idea for me to see for a coronavirus isolation activity. I know many of you have seen it. Frankly, it scared the crap out of me! I fully get that it was a story well told, a look at Alzheimer’s from a patients perspective. Both of my grandmothers had some form of dementia in old age, one of them I never knew, the other developed it after age 90. This was a story of it hitting much younger. So last night we were watching a show with animals and there was a rhino, I commented about it as a raccoon. My husband said “you mean rhino” and I inwardly flipped out, oh no, there it is! I have it! Today, I called one of our dogs by the name of a former dog, and again, oh no, I’ve got it! How will I tell my family? Maybe they already know and don’t know how to tell me?! Still Alice needs to fade from my thoughts and soon!
(And this should have been under discussions, sorry)
