Alzheimer's by TalesOfNightWing Alzheimer's by TalesOfNightWing
You search my eyes, and I wonder...Who are you?
Your face... maybe I remember... or your eyes....
Do we know each other?

Stranger... stranger.... remember....

A childhood friend? What? Don't I remember, you ask?
I am trying. I promise. These tears of fear and frustration beginning to well up.... because.....

I can't remember my childhood.

It is sad... but I wanted to raise awareness for this disease because other diseases are given much more support and recognition when this disease hurts families just as badly. Thank you for caring.

How long do I sit here?
I just reminded you of who I am
I cannot forget you

I am right here, right next to you

I didn't think you would ever forget me
I have always loved you; I don't know what to do

I was once a child in your arms

I have had to deal with two relatives that had Alzheimers that led to chronic alzheimers which led to their deaths... eventually, the brain itself stops remembering how to function properly.

I was placing myself in the mindset of someone more directly affected... but I had an idea.

Well, I hope my art has a good impact... I have never actually dealt with Alzheimers in the family, but I have met one lady with it. I know extremely little about it... I just thought that the piece I made reminded me of it...

Your piece was had a strong emotional impact to it as a theme, and it worked very well.

Lets hope you never have to deal with it in person, yourself or family.

I think it make you think of what it would be like..the confusion and disorientation..
You are a writer, did you ever read my poem called Obsolete? It makes me cry. I was trying to put myself in the place of an 80 year old. It made me really view things differently. Kind of one of those rare times when something comes to you, and actually changes your perspective. I was hoping it would change others too.
