<p>Lately, I’ve been pushing myself and doing a lot. I set limitations for myself but find them difficult to follow. There is so much I want to do in life, but Alzheimer disease has changed my goals.</p>
<p>I was diagnosed with the disease in 1997, and the long good-bye goes on. Not that I mind. I’m not ready for Heaven yet, but there are days like today that I just have to slow down and rest up for tomorrow and what it may hold for me. It’s a challenge, but one that I accept. The Alzheimer association has been a tremendous help. Then there is my medication, Aricept, and my doctor. I must say I have a support system that I deeply appreciate.</p>
<p>On days like today, I’m glad that they encourage me and cheer me on. I need it. I don’t want sympathy, but I do need support and lots of it. There is life after diagnosis and I plan to do my best to live it.</p>
