My Dad was diagnosed 4 years ago. He is 75 and as healthy as a horse. Very active his entire life and has been the light of my son's life since he's been form. But the past few months I have noticed his train of thought is always interrupted, he cannot find the words for common items etc. I wonder what he feels. Is he mad at the world, scared, does he know what is to come? Should I ask him and talk to him about the disease or would that be like rubbing salt into the wound? I am so mad at this dreadful degrading disease. To take a healthy active man and turn him into a dependant aging person is just so unfair and so difficult to watch happen. You would think at this day and age there would be a cure or at least better meds available to stop the progression better than there are now. Sorry I need to vent. I am just so angry.
