17 (who?)
Taking away precious memories since 1906.
    I'm still on drawing Hiatus
    We did six word stories in eighth grade, I really liked them and I have a whole list of them.

    Another one, because I won't be uploading more.

    Stillbirth, and baby boots never touched
    I was inspired from Ernest Hemingway, one of our family friends had a stillborn so I made this one while thinking about here.

    These are addictive, I can't stop making them! Either way enjoy!

    Also my aunts husbands grandma has Alzheimer, it's such a terrible thing, every time we visit her every five minute (no joke) she'll be asking who we are.

    //edit: Alzheimer was first discovered in 1906, but there might of been other cases before it was given a name. I'm only going off information I know ; v ;

I lost my mother 2 years to it, and this brings all that back. But this is very powerful.

I'm so sorry you've lost your mother, was it to Alzheimer's?
I can't completely understand your lose, it must of been a lot to handle.
Thank you for commenting, I'm sorry about your lose again

As an advertising and marketing student who enjoys writing, this is such a representation of exactly that - a great piece of literature that moves its audience to become knowledgable and act, if they truly feel motivated to.

Beautiful, beautiful work.

Bwaaa, thank you so much. It really means a lot, mostly because there's some great writers out there-- and yourself-- and you took your time to comment. It means a lot

Thank you again <3

Aw, you're welcome :D
You're absolutely right! However, for others to become just as great, they need to hear how others feel about their work.

Just cause the message is out, it doesn't guarantee your viewer actually received it.

Haha, but like I said before, this piece is fantastic! :)
Keep it up :highfive:

This is really profound, I have to say.

It feels like an advertisement, and yet.. what it's advertising isn't something that anybody would want, though some would, perhaps.

I think you really appeal to our sympathy when you use 'precious' along with the memories to really signify how important they are.

Intense piece. :nod:

I actually never realized that it did sound like it was advertising until you pointed it out.
I really appreciate the comment, mostly because I'm not the best at writing, but I just love six word stories for some reason.

Thank you so much again, it really means a lot <3

I wanted to cry when I read this. Well written. I remember when my grandmother had Alzheimers, it was sad when she regressed to the point that she thought she had just had her baby and didn't know where it was, she was so distressed. I remember another lady at the nursing home where we visited, terrified about being stuck in a cupboard that was on fire.

I experienced PTSD memory loss and it wasn't fun..thankfully I have improved. But I can understand their pain somewhat, and I am scared of the day when it isn't PTSD but actual Alzheimers.

I'm so sorry to hear about that. I honestly hope Alzheimer's will will one day be cured, it's such a terrible disease! Sometimes the woman I know who has it will think her husband is alive, it's so sad we have to tell her that he's passed away. It breaks my heart.

D: I hope everything is well with you! Hopefully it wasn't Alzheimer's :heart:
