Lyn has a new way of explaining her disease and how her brain works. Last week, she explained her brain to the staff at day hab in a very concise way. She stated:
"Half of my brain is connected and the other half isn't. So, I can't do everything like I used to."
The staff had asked if she understood what they had just said to her. She didn't and this was her explanation. I think it is right on target. It is also a good reminder that individuals with Alzheimer's are often aware of their disease and its progressive changes.
