Finding Joy

2 comments

I definitely agree with the initial sentiment that the stigma surrounding an Alz diagnosis should be eliminated. That statistic that less than half of Alz patients are told about their diagnosis is astounding. I always think of Charlie's point comparing a cancer diagnosis to the experience of the alz diagnosis.

It's so refreshing to read something positive! Steve used to joke about it sometimes, as in "I have Alzheimer's, what your excuse!" or "It's okay, I have Alzheimer's. I won't remember anyway!", but he only did that with close friends or family. We try to be as positive as possible in our daily lives, but it sounds like this couple has taken it to a whole new level. The gentlemen also appears to be in early stage, which makes processing jokes a little easier. Thanks for sharing!
