Imprisoned in one's own rapidly shrinking brain is how a doctor described it to me. I wouldn't wish Dementia or Alzheimer's on my worst enemy. As the patient's brain slowly dies, they change physically and eventually forget who their loved ones are. Patients can eventually become bedridden, unable to move & unable to eat or drink. There will be people who will scroll by this message because Dementia or Alzheimer's has not touched them. They may not know what it's like to have a loved one who has led a battle against Dementia or Alzheimer's. For all the people I know, I ask a small favor. If you know someone who has battled with Dementia or Alzheimer's or is still struggling, please add this to your status for one hour. Copy & Paste to support victims & families affected by this cruel illness as there is no cure and there are no survivors! Hold your finger on the message to copy it, then paste it on your page.

I am posting this as my Mother has this dreadful disease. I hate this for her as she is now not able to feed herself and she is down to 109 Please pray for my Mother... Thank you
