I had a “phone a friend moment” because of early onset Alzheimer’s.
I am an avid reader and researcher. Since my diagnosis with Early Onset Alzheimer’s in December I have been reading and watching everything I can get my hands on relating to cognitive decline. In my case, it is hereditary and my genetic testing supports my diagnosis, but I also have a lot of toxicity in … Continue reading My Toxic Brain
This is a post about how it is difficult for people with Alzheimer’s to have control over their medications and how I am handling it.
I worked for 31 years for a large Corporation. Most of those years were spent in Leadership positions doing Project Management and Business Planning.
