Imagine hearing these words: "She has Alzheimer's." Now imagine that "she" is vibrant, active, loving, healthy...and just 55. Acclaimed CBS News reporter Barry Petersen writes about hearing the unimaginable; what it meant, what it still means, what he did---and didn't do---and how this beautiful love story needs to be heard by the thousands of families who have already heard that same devastating diagnosis: early onset Alzheimer's disease. Even though Barry has spent his long-time, award-winning television career covering wars and events that shaped the world, he was not even slightly prepared for what happened to his darling wife, Jan, and how it would impact his life.

Powerful for the caregiver
Jan used to pack when they would go on trips and he'd have to now go in and repack because Jan had packed too much and some were for cold weather others for summer.
His true feelings and emotions
No I needed to take it in pieces to fully absorb.
If you or someone you know is a caregiver it's a must read. Loved the truth Barry tells it like it is.
I learn who to listen to in my struggle with my wifes , alzheers
thr idea of having the critic have status and also having the critic have eligibility were new concepts to me
