I don't know if anyone here knows about Kate Mulgrew, she played Captain Janeway in Star Trek Voyager amongst other things.... As she was filming she noticed a change in her mum, she eventually found out her mum had Alzheimer's, anyway, she has written a book of how she found out about her mums condition, and how the condition developed, including when she lost her mum to this cruel disease...there was an excerpt from the book but I can't find it....
The book is called.. http://prntscr.com/sn9ddi sorry about the link...would be interesting to know what you all think and how similar/ dissimilar to your own struggles?

I read the excerpt and was thinking, yes my mum did that, that as well.....its like she was talking about my mum, maybe everyone can relate to it...
I met Kate once when the cast of Voyager came to Blackpool, my one and only Star Trek Convention.
