    This is the title of the Book of the week on R4 BBC read by its author Sally Magnusson. Sally’s journalist mother Mamie Baird had Alzheimer’s and Sally is very involved in different ways in this awful illness.

    As always she is interesting and charming.

    Listen on your podcast on Sounds or iplayer.

    I bought that book but could ever bring myself to read it. I eventually gave it away.

    Sally M is also the founder of the Playlist for Life Charity.

    Straight away she mentioned something that I had noticed. Long before any diagnosis the loss of curiosity, of enthusiasm. Of course these things only came spasmodically as we’ve all
    Noticed so it takes a while before the evidence builds up. Another very interesting point is that her mother was a twin but the twin didn’t get the illness!

    I don`t seem able to read of others` experiences however relevant they are.

    I don`t understand why I find it different here on DTP but it is as it is.

    I posted that back in January so I don't know if it is still on iplayer or Sounds. Have a root about online and you might find it.
