My father had Alzehiemerís. We began noticing when he asked the same question twice in the same conversation, forgot his grandsonís names, and lost entire conversations. He insisted that there was nothing wrong with his memory, but Iím sure he knew something was happening to his mind,. He just couldnít talk about it.†
I notice that I forget more these days, and wonder: is this normal? What's happening in my brain? I write everything down. Not that my memoirs are fascinating reading, but they are a part of my brain. I intend to keep them.
