Mary's Place

A web page about the life of a lady who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's.

Location: Piedmont, Oklahoma, United States

I live in Piedmont, OK, with my Husband of 50 years who has been very supportive. We have 2 sons,David and Kenny, 6 grandkids, and 6 great grandkids. I enjoy feeding and watching the birds and squirrels. Before I was diagnosed with Alzheimer's, I ran a Licensed Day Care Home for Infants for 15 years. I noticed I wasn't able to remember important things and having problems with my speech. I was experiencing severe headaches. I would get lost. I didn't know how to use the computer. At the age of 55, I told my doctor. I was sent for an MRI. which showed a large amount of shrinkage. I went to a neurologist who sent me for two days of testing. I was diagnosed with dementia of the Alzheimer's type. My husband and I were both in shock. I had to give up my job. I went to see a social worker. I've taken Aricept for 11 years. I can now use the computer and even do this web page. I also host a chat room for dementia patients. This is a very lonely disease. I don't want anyone to feel as lonely as I did when I was diagnosed (I thought I was the only one over 50 that had Alzheimer's). In 2006 I started taking Namenda. Also I was told I have a mixed dementia, Alzheimer's/Vascular.

Dave and I watched the OU/Nebraska game and the Sooner’s won… Dave planted all the pansies for me and I supervised. I wasn’t able to stay out for long because of the wind, it hurts my ears… I called our niece Barbara in Indiana. She was going to go visit Everett and Ruth’s grave. Everett was my brother and Ruth was his wife. I sure miss Everett and Ruth… I was riding my stationery bike this morning and looking at my doll collection. I have all my dolls but one. I don’t have Daisy anymore and I miss her. She was a favorite one and one of the more expensive ones that I had given to my Mother when she came to visit me in 1995. I was hoping she would be returned to me when Mom passed away… I fixed supper and hosted chat… I brought the Amaryllis in from outside… Goodnight All… Keeping The Faith In Oklahoma
