I think one of the hardest things I'll ever have to do in my life is watch my beloved, intellegent father succomb to his old age.

  • My wife's 92 year old grandmother even thinks its horrible how folks younger than her turn into shells. -Thats not your golden years!- She said.

    She works and does her own bookkeeping. I really wonder if anyone should retire. It seems to start there.

  • no one likes to succumb. it tastes terrible.

  • I know how you feel. My grandfather got alzheimer's. He was the greatest person I have ever known. It was hard to watch his mind deteriorate.

  • It does suck, my mother in law has had it for 8 years. The person we knew and loved is long gone, all that's left now is a shell that breathes and (with help) eats. I hope that euthanasia is legal by the time I'm her age.

  • Alzheimer's is hereditary, so as much as it sucks right now, you probably won't remember any of it.
