Alzheimer's Diary: A Wife's Journal
Book by Michelle Montgomery

This diary shows what Alzheimer's is like from the other side, the eyes and heart of a wife who is no longer only a wife but a caregiver.  It is not an easy story.  That's how Alzheimer's is.  Deep down you know this--you have felt the loss, frustration, anger, fatigue, and sorrow.  You know what it's like when there doesn't seem to be an end in sight, each day like the last, only worst.  But you don't have words for your feelings; you don't know what to do with the memories.  So you lie sleepless in the dark, wondering about tomorrow's heartbreak.  This book is for you.  Each night after putting her husband who has Alzheimer's to bed, the author writes in her diary about her love, her passion, her anger, her memories, and her loss.
