Hi Trace~
That was me who 'googled' you the first time I joined the forum & read about your stories. Wink

That's why I figured it would help Gloria to find out more detail, since she too was filled with questions regarding your Early Onset & was new here.

Thanks Susanne for letting others know. Love Ya!!!

My mind is empty beyond words, so much to say yet nothing to say.
I listen to the voices that sound familiar, yet my mind is still empty.
I see familiar faces and feel the touch of a hand, yet my mind is still empty.
I see far off places that are forgotten, yet my mind is still empty.
I smell the forgotten scent of a rose, yet my mind is still empty.
I taste the forgotten flavor of tastes from long ago, yet my mind is still empty.
I touch forgotten things from long ago, yet my mind is still empty.
My mind is so empty beyond words, so much to say yet nothing to say.

Why were you diagnosed so young? What made you suspect that you had early signs of Alzheimers? I'm sorry that I'm stepping on the wayside on this topic. Where can I read about you joining the forum? What page can I find you on "Who are you?"


Hi & Welcome to the forum. Smiler Glad that you joined!

I'm not Tracy, but sure you will hear from her soon. Don't know what page she is on "Who are you" topic, but you can certainly learn a lot about her even by googling her name: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=Tracy+Mobley&btnG=Google+Search

She is the most amazing & encouraging person I have ever known who suffers with a disease that as we know... continues to progress with each day. Frowner

In lieu of it all, she has still written 2 books on the subject, as well as continued to be an activist for dementia/AZ - in addition to being a wife, mother & dear friend who is on the forum to educate us from the opposite side of the spectrum.

She has been a blessing to us all here & I'm glad that you will get to know her more personally too.

Thanks to all of my many friends that have responded here, each of you are very special to me.

Gloria, I had no idea that you could google me and find so much information but as Barb said, that will pretty much give you my story.

To answer your question, "why was I diagnosed so young?" Well, only God can tell you that and maybe through all of these people here and reading my story you will find out. You can find my story Young Hope The Broken Road at www.amazon.com

Joyce as for the children's story I Remember When, it was a "limited" edition through a crappy publisher who I am no longer with. I am hoping to get it revised by next spring, just have to keep your fingers crossed. Getting a children's book with photos published is outrageously costly.

I am not always aware of my decline. I argue with my husband as he tells me I am forgetting more and more and need more assistance. I guess being in the early middle stages of the disease makes a difference rather than never really knowing. I hope that makes sense?

thank you, bb girl! I joined the Caregiver's group about a month or so ago. I've really enjoyed everyone's own story. I've had my dad live with me for a little over a year. I don't know why I didn't visit earlier, but glad I did!

Tracy,

I have only been here a short while and you have made the greatest impression on me and helped me the most. I want to thank you for all you've done for me and others.

I just now realized why I feel so close to you. You are the same age as my daughter and I can't imagine her going through what you're going through. I just want to put my arms around you and hold you and tell you that things will be alright, but we both know things will never be alright. If there was anything I could do to help you, I would.

I will forever be grateful for all you've done for me.

How are you aware of your own decline? My mother has been a little hostile lately when you remind her. Also she acts as if she doesn't have a problem remember , but I know that's not the case.
