Wish I had someone who loved me like that

I have watched three movies about Alzheimer's, they are all classics, "The Eraser in My Mind", "Father Trapped in Time" and "Still Alice" (this one today), why don't I like realism themes , Just because I always cry, while watching the movie, I thought that I might have such a day. If it were me, what would I do?

She first created a "butterfly" folder, and when her memory died, she attempted suicide.

She said that Alzheimer's is not as good as cancer, at least cancer will not lose social skills, and she forgot how to say that word while talking.

In order to prevent herself from forgetting when she went to give a speech, she always repeated the speech over and over again, and she read and drew a sentence with a highlighter.

She couldn't even dress herself, she "witnessed" the birth of her eldest daughter and child, but she had to forget it for a moment.

Watching her little daughter's performance, she forgot that she once disapproved of her taking this path, and praised her greatly.

You tell her, let's move to another place to live? At first she argued with you, saying you were selfish, and then she couldn't understand what you were saying.

She is like the end of the story, the soul rises, goes back to the past, and floats into the future...

Why am I me, is it because I have memory, am I who lost my memory or me? There are many, many families in the society that will end up in "Father Trapped in Time", and even more unfortunate than that, we are really short-sighted, we can only see the time that feels the moment, and can't see the time that can't feel the future. Days, we are really short-sighted, we can only reminisce about the past days, but cannot learn from the past days, why not cherish the present? Why are you willing to sigh and sigh in the days of running water? This is probably us, always thinking that there will be more opportunities in the future and things will get better, ignoring the present self.

Don't make too many excuses for yourself, just do whatever you want! [Come on] [Sun] [Celebrate] (Say so much but still sad? What's going on)

Still Alice quotes

  • Dr. Alice Howland: Good morning. It's an honor to be here. The poet Elizabeth Bishoponce wrote: 'the Art of Losing isn't hard to master: so many things seem filled with the intent to be lost that their loss is no disaster.' I'm not a poet, I am a person living with Early Onset Alzheimer's, and as that person I find myself learning the art of losing every day. Losing my bearings, losing objects, losing sleep, but mostly losing memories...

    [she knocks the pages from the podium]

    Dr. Alice Howland: I think I'll try to forget that just happened.

    [crowd laughs]

    Dr. Alice Howland: All my life I've accumulated memories - they've become, in a way, my most precious possessions. The night I met my husband, the first time I held my textbook in my hands. Having children, making friends, traveling the world. Everything I accumulated in life, everything I've worked so hard for - now all that is being ripped away. As you can imagine, or as you know, this is hell. But it gets worse. Who can take us seriously when we are so far from who we once were? Our strange behavior and fumbled sentences change other's perception of us and our perception of ourselves. We become ridiculous, incapable, comic. But this is not who we are, this is our disease. And like any disease it has a cause, it has a progression, and it could have a cure. My greatest wish is that my children, our children - the next generation - do not have to face what I am facing. But for the time being, I'm still alive. I know I'm alive. I have people I love dearly. I have things I want to do with my life. I rail against myself for not being able to remember things - but I still have moments in the day of pure happiness and joy. And please do not think that I am suffering. I am not suffering. I am struggling. Struggling to be part of things, to stay connected to whom I was once. So, 'live in the moment' I tell myself. It's really all I can do, live in the moment. And not beat myself up too much... and not beat myself up too much for mastering the art of losing. One thing I will try to hold onto though is the memory of speaking here today. It will go, I know it will. It may be gone by tomorrow. But it means so much to be talking here, today, like my old ambitious self who was so fascinated by communication. Thank you for this opportunity. It means the world to me. Thank you.

  • Dr. Alice Howland: I was looking for this last night.

    Dr. John Howland: [whispering to Anna] It was a month ago.
