Still Peggy

Yeah!!  Julianne Moore won best actress for Still Alice.  This movie has really raised awareness for the disease.  So, the Alzheimer's Association is doing a camaign called #still...
encouraging people like us to post pics of our loved ones with ALZ.  So, I thought we'd participate because the whole point of my blog and Facebook is to do exactly what the movie is doing.  Show people the real face of ALZ.  I loved Julianne's speech when she said that "People with Alzheimer's deserve to be seen. " That's my whole reason for this blog.

But, Oh, Ugh, how do you take a good picture with someone with Alzheimer's Disease?

Smile? Say Cheese? Look somber, morose, sad, serious, very serious, lightly serious?  How about bunny ears behind her head? Happy? Laughing? no, delete. delete. delete.  My hair looks funny, I look old, too smiley, my hair!  Stop.  Not about me.  How does Peggy look?  same. same. same. "Mom! Open your eyes."  Okay, let's try this again.  click. click. click. click.  #stillPeggy #mybrain

My 7 year old daughter just woke up and came over to the computer and said
"That's a terrible Picture."  Yeah, it is, and Alzheimer's is a terrible disease. #ENDALZ
