Just wanted to say hi to everyone.

Belonged to another message board for Alzheimers.

My mom who is 85 today has had this disease for many years now and has been in a nursing home for the last year and a half.

Today is a little harder on me, probably because it is her birthday.

My mom's mother and father both died from this disease as has two of her siblings. Another sister got alzheimers after my mom did but got worse much faster and is now in a nursing home too.

Just wanted to say hi and give you a little of my background.

Hope to talk to some of you soon!

Hi Candyjane and Lynne!  I feel like I'm running all over creation joining AD sites!  Just wanted to check in and say hello; I am new here, I', 59, and I have a 90 year old Mother who is in a locked AD facility in Fla.  It has been a very rocky road, but she seems to have finally adjusted.  Just like to stay connected to others and try to support and listen to the trials and miseries of this disease.  Hope to see others from our dying board here.  Love, Gladness

Hello all,

Happy birthdyay mom!!! My dad has AD never thought of checking a site like this. I post on the Lupus boards here - but just started a few days ago. will be looking around for some good ideas. We are at a point where we are trying to find things for dad to do. He is still at home with mom but can do 1st grade projects. He seems to enjoy "helping me" with my stuff.

see ya round the boards.

Hi Lynne, Gladnesss and Pat. So happy you're all here.

Saw you mention this board Lynne so knew I had found you!!

Gladness so glad to see you here too much while checking to see what some of these things did here put you on my ignore list by accident. Maybe Lynne can tell me how to correct what I just did!! Would never ignore you Gladness, that's for sure.

Need to get used to these boards and these eyes of mine have a hard time making out some of the icons etc.

Hi to you Pat also.

Even though CandyJane is my user name wanted to let everyone know it was Pat also, but since there were so many Pats and Patricia's on the other board just left it as CandyJane. So now you know I'm Pat too but won't use it if it's going to mix everyone up.

I'm mixed up enough on the new board right now for everyone!!! LOL

I'll get the hang of it eventually!!

Hugs to you all,

CandyJane

Hello CandyJane
Sorry today was such a rough one for you. Make yourself a cup of tea and turn on some soft music and just try and relax.
Take some deep breaths also.

I will touch base with you later as I am dealing AD with my parents.

CandyJane - To unignore someone, go to the Control Panel and it says there's an option to take off any blocks.

Thanks PixieDustStorm for telling me how to get my friends taken off the ignore list.

Hopefully I won't mess up again but now know their are people like you out there who will help if I do mess up.

Thanks so much!!
