Getting Started

Sometimes life compels us to act, respond, do something! My beloved is dying of Alzheimer's. She was diagnosed with Early Onset of Alzheimer's when she was only 55 years young. I am younger, still need to work, and have a very intense & demanding job. What to do? Move forward.

When referring to her husbands battle with Alzheimer's Nancy Reagan labeled it "The Long Goodbye." Not sure is she coined this phrase or borrowed it from another. Either way it fits quite well for me. So I shall aptly name this blog, "The Long Goodbye."

Much of what I share here will be poetry... for those who dislike this form of expression... oh well, I hope you will bear with me. I am hoping this blog will not only create a release for me but educate others on the bastard we call Alzheimer's. Thank you for reading my blog.


  1. My heart breaks for you. I hope this blog gives you any release and comfort you need. Thank you for sharing it with us in the blog community.
