I have just listened too this Glen Campbell song and I am now beside myself with grief. I have never heard anything that sums up this horrible illness so well. The person you grieve for has no idea, this was made so real for me when my husband of 38 years asked me on Saturday what my name was, the reality is that over half of your life has disappeared, this illness not only takes them but you as well. I am so sorry to sound so miserable but after six years living with this illness , the last two with my husband in care ,every day feels like day one. I visit him every day and I always feel I am in denial about his dementia, l keep expecting him to be the person I knew and not this stranger who does not know me.
