Sara tells the now mythic tale of crumbling from the stress of caring for her mother through Alzheimer’s disease. I also cared for my father while he had it, and now I have it. First signs were during my mid 50’s. I was able to communicate with my father until his dying breath. It never occurred to me that he “did not know me” or that his inability to name people or use verbal language meant he had disappeared, the empty vessel paradigm. Others in my family simply ignored him when he no longer spoke as they did. It is a horrible thing to imagine people seeing Alzheimer’s as the total destruction of a person. Mind and consciousness exist even in that damaged body, we read your energy, the tone of voice, our processing of the material world becomes very slow and people have no patience. If people continue to believe this way, and stress themselves out and desert the sick it only adds to the difficulty of living around a failing mind for every one.
I have found cannabis a great substitute for medications to endure this course, this way of dying. People set themselves for disaster or a spiritual journey by what they expect to see in the person with the illness. I am so glad I was able to be with my Father and remain his friend, his helped, his daughter through it all. It was difficult and wonderful.

    We should be supporting one another through this disease, not tearing others down.
