This post from Lonna Whiting is one of the most poignant pieces I’ve seen. So many of these are things I’ve felt or experienced – plenty I’m not proud of. But, it’s raw, unfiltered reality. It’s confirmation that only someone who has experienced this disease can truly understand. Incredibly sad, yet oddly comforting. In time, if we’re lucky, we reach a point of acceptance; we love and enjoy the time we have left with our loved ones despite the fact they aren’t who they once were. But at the end of the day, we still HATE this disease more than words can say… Thank you for your courage and honesty, Lonna.
