my story revisted #146-hope vs no hope at all

MY STORY REVISITED #146-HOPE VS NO HOPE AT ALL 

ive thought a lot about alzheimers disease recently
two days ago was the 9th anniversary of my younger brothers death in the final stages of alzheimers
i think of the last time i saw him in his final stage
a month later he would die
finally he was at peace
i want my family to let me go when i reach that stage

yesterday my interview below i did with the being patient website and podcast was reposted on facebook


so this morning i went and clicked on the link to youtube and watched the interview again

i only teared up a few times

i realized that there is a lot of information in that interview that family and friends and patients need to know 

i suggest if you are in the alzheimers world as one of those folks that you watch this interview

i am speaking as a family member as a family doctor and as a patient
the trifecta i call it 

hopefully you learn something you can use in your alzheimers life by watching this video from my interview with being patient

beingpatient.com is a good alzheimers website to be following to help keep you abreast of whats happening in the alzheimer world

next week i go in for my #20 real drug biogen aduhelm infusion at ucla
i got 18 placebos at the beginning of the study
my next mri is in september

the title of the blog today is a statement i made about the aduhelm or aducanumab infusions

thats what it gives those of us with the diagnosis

hope vs no hope at all
