Reading progress update: I've listened to 80% of Still Alice...

Still Alice - Lisa Genova, Lisa Genova

and it's just heart breaking. There are all kinds of things that come along with the diagnosis of early onset Alzheimer's Disease; things that never would have crossed my mind if I hadn't been listening to this story.

 

Things like telling your children you have it. Telling your children that they might have it. (Can you imagine how hard that must be?) Finding out that one or more of your children does have it. Wondering if their children will get it.

 

I can't even. But this book is doing a good job of making me. And it's just so very sad.
