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.
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.
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
I actually know how you feel, I've been having some times where I just forget everything. I was in my room a few nights ago and I just blanked out completely I couldn't think straight, I had no clue where I was. Hopefully I'll get better like you have, I'm glad things worked out for the best for you!
one of my Grandmas had Alzheimer, but it grew worse. she couldn't remember anything at all, just sat there quietly, and then she passed away. she was only lucid once, when I was very little, but it was for only a moment.
I don't really visit the person I know who has Alzheimer's, It's too sad to see her. I'm so sorry your grandmother had it. It's devastating to have someone that close to family get something like that (me and my grandma are super close lol). I'm sorry for your loss, hopefully it no one else in your family will get it.
