First times for new symptoms are always difficult – the realization that you just slipped a notch.
Yes, it is late; I was starting preparations for bed. Husband and I had enjoyed two hours of time together watching the show, “John Adams”. Fifteen minutes ago I walked in the bathroom, turned on the light … and had no idea where I was. For a moment nothing looked familiar, and I was extremely confused. Where am I? I forgot where I was and why I was there … just standing in the room in shock because I did not recognize where I was.
It only took a moment and reality clicked back again. I returned to the living room and hugged my husband … and then I cried.
It is scary to realize I am losing … everything.
