This is going to be a difficult post. My late mother had Alzheimer’s and my father has advanced Alzheimer’s
Very sadly, the public misunderstand the disease. You do not and cannot die from Alzheimer’s. Instead the body and mind will just give up and die from something like pneumonia or have multiple organ failure.
My beloved Mum had Alzheimer’s but the last time that I saw her, she was still “with me”. I talked to her and she understood everything that I said. We ended the one way conversation with her smiling at me and tapping my arm.
That night, my father stayed with her, probably out of sheer guilt because he had treated her so badly through all of their marriage; in fact, he treated her so badly that he made her so unwell that she had to go into hospital and for a long time, did not recognise her. She DIDN’T want to recognise him.
The oxygen was turned off the next morning, at my father’s request and she died shortly afterwards, alone, unlike Liesel, my everything, when all of the family were around her.
My father’s Alzheimer’s has meant that not only has my life been ruined but I now have no daughter, my little girl. I am controlled by his masonic compatriots, even though he has very advanced Alzheimer’s, as my income comes solely from the trust and all of those who need to know, know that.
As I said in a previous post on my retrospection, although he abused me as a boy, I did love him but, given my father’s advanced illness, he has gone; he is no longer my father. Neither do I wish to say “goodbye” to him, given what he has put me through and, as a result of his actions, what I have lost, all because of him
