Welcome to The Slow Forget.
I am a poet. And a writer.
This blog is about my mom. Your mom. Your dad. Your cousin, grandma, aunt, neighbor, client, etc.
My mom doesn’t even know I write. Mr. Alzheimer’s has taken control of her brain.
I’m a long-distance care-giver. Mom has already forgotten my home. The day she forgets my name will be one of the hardest days of my life.
You might be an at-home care-giver. You may be further along this journey than I am.
But, we all have something to say about this disease of “Slow Forget.”
I began this blog as a way to share stories and poetry about the dementia journey but it has morphed a little. I’m writing more about all the different ways ALZ touches our lives, changes us, and confuses us.
I do want to hear your stories, your sorrows, and your celebrations of Alzheimer’s. The good, the bad, the ugly. The sometimes funny.
What about you?
Do you write to soothe the confusion of Alzheimer’s? Do you enjoy poetry as a way of expressing yourself?
Take a moment to share.
