Dave fixed us a delicious western omelet for breakfast and we laid in bed and watched the Sunday morning TV shows and drank coffee… I stripped the beds and thought about putting on the flannel sheets but think I will wait awhile before doing that… I rode my bike for a mile and a half and burned up 20 calories. LOL… I fed the pansies and all the other blooming flowers. The roses are still blooming as are the? Oh shoot, my mind just went blank. I can’t bring up the flowers I was trying to think of. It will come to me later… Okay it is Geraniums, Crown of Thorns, and Passion Flower…. The joints in my hands, feet and legs are sure hurting today I bet we are going to have some rain… I hosted chat and did laundry… Goodnight All… Keeping The Faith In Oklahoma
A web page about the life of a lady who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's.
- Name: Mary Lockhart
- 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.
