today is the day


here is the link to rsvp for my being patient interview today
at 1200 noon pst

to watch the interview with being patient you have to rsvp at the link above
they will ask you for
your name
your email address
you have to verify you are a human by checking the box and you will be shown pictures 
eg mine was identify the ones with cars in it

then you will be sent a confirmatory email
that you click on to watch the interview

there is also a youtube link they send you that you can watch it later on youtube

if you havent rsvped yet you might not get the confirmatory email back in time to watch it live but you can just click on the youtube link to watch it later

it took about 24 hours for the confirmatory email to arrive in our email boxes

i also will post the youtube link later when the interview is available

if you want to keep up with what is going on in the alzheimers world sign up for their being patient newsletters
mine comes in about once a week
i read the articles and watch the interviews they do 

you of course can get information on alzheimers on this blog 
i write about my old blogs on wednesdays and do an alzheimers news on fridays
i also try to document my journey as i go eg now i write about my infusions and involvement in the aduhelm study

the way i hooked up with being patient was i watched one of the interviews they did with a neurologist who is diagnosed with my diagnosis
in the comment section i wrote a brief comment about my story 

they researched me and read my interviews done previously by newspapers
they reached out to me and asked if i would mind being interviewed

of course i said
anything to spread the word on alzheimers

i did a preinterview on zoom two weeks ago with the person that will interview me today
the interview will be about
my story with my diagnosis and how i have been doing the last 10 years
my involvement with the aduhelm (aducanumab) study
my thoughts on the use of aduhelm (aducanumab)

my goal when i do these interviews or do a blog on alzheimers disease is to reach one person who needs help in getting the right advice on alzheimers 
hoping they will get help or get their loved one help or if they are a caregiver to get themselves some help
if i reach that one person 
its all worth it
