Alzheimer’s takes so much away.
The person you knew and loved is not there anymore. You can still see them, but it’s not them. They are there, but they are gone. They are no longer standing as who they once were. They’ve fallen, and become someone else.
Alzheimer’s is such a tragic disease.
Most of us have lost loved ones to one form of disease or another. Disease, injuries, accidents, illnesses. All kinds of troublesome events can take our loved ones away from us.
Loss and grief are such painful emotions.
If your heart is breaking, or has been broken by watching your loved one slip away from you, please have a listen to this incredible song by Glen Campbell, written about his final stages of Alzheimer’s. It has just recently been released, and will be Glen Campbell’s final song.
I think it’s his best song.
This music is just far too powerful and heart-reaching to not share. I’m sure we all can relate to how it feels to lose someone.
I’m Not Gonna Miss You
— a heart-wrenching description of Alzheimer’s Disease , grief, loss, and passing.
So beautifully but painfully intense.
I realize that most of the readers of this blog are not here to hear about Alzheimer’s . However, many of the mental health diseases and the long term effects of trauma can steal people away from each other. Or prevent relationships. Or interfere with relationships. Or end relationships. Or block feelings. Or block emotional connections. Or create distance between people.
You might understand a whole lot about how this feels.
And you’ve probably experienced loss in your life.
I hope this song brings comfort to your pain.
