    As the hours slip by,

  10. Long Goodbyes

    Inspirational Poem About Alzheimer's

    Nancy Reagan once said, "Alzheimer's is just another word for a long goodbye"

    Nurses told us that some go back to their childhood and some act like they're five.
    And we have all said, "We love her so much," but she has changed; she's just not the same.

  12. What Is Pain?

    • By Kathleen B. Hagen
    • Published: November 2008
    Alzheimer's Disease

    Pain is watching yourself fade into a helpless person.
    Pain is not being able to do what you did yesterday.
    Pain is not remembering what you did and why or where you bought things.
    Pain is not being able to see the flowers or the children on the other side of the room.

    No story, just a big thank-you.
    Reading some of your stories made me cry. Lives touched, afraid of the future, of what might be. But together it won't be so hard.
    Thank-you
