    what if you woke up one day
    and tried to help save your family money
    but ended up costing them money instead

    what if you woke up one day
    and tried to talk
    but everyone misunderstood

    what if you woke up one day
    and every task you tried to do
    you couldnt concentrate long enough to finish

    what if you woke up one day
    and tried to drive
    but couldnt rememberwhere you wanted to go

    what if you woke up one day
    and wanted to talk
    but couldnt remember what you wanted to say

    what if you woke up one day
    and all this happened to you
    but no one could tell

    this is what its like for me
    when I wake up each day

    my name is Laura Hanson and I have Early Onset Alz Dz

    Laurah,
    What can I say, I just read your post and feel incredibly sad for you. I have no advice for you really. I just wanted to tell you all my thoughts and good wishes are with you.
    Regards, Jocelyn

    Laura,

    Thank you for writing that. It is so hard from the outside to know what it feels like in there when things start to change.

    I ask my husband and he can’t say, or maybe I should say I don’t hear it the way he says it.

    What you have to say helps all of us be able to relate in a new way.

    Thank you so much.
