The Stealer. Our Journey with Early On-Set Alzheimer's Disease.
by Rosanna Glennon
Our journey with Early On-Set Alzheimers started the very moment my husband retired from March Air Force Base, 1/2005. Zero enjoyment from retirement- zero everything. He was 58 I was 53. He has gone through each and every symptom of this dreadful stealing disease.
He was a man that could do anything- a plumbing contractor, builder, you name it, now he cannot even hold a toothbrush, or sit in a chair without extreme help- he is my 63 year old child. People were always calling on my husband to work for them. I had to sell our home, his truck, Alzheimers steals everything from you-piece by piece, material, emotionally and physically.
