I would like to thank Joe Potocny for the honor of being invited to guest blog on his piece of the internet.http://living-with-alzhiemers.blogspot.com/
Joe has Alzheimer's. Joe is a tough, smart and dignified guy. His mission is to help us to all remember. Joe lets us know that you never ever cast aside a human being who has the disease. It is as simple as that. He has a fantastic blog and you see his essence and spirit in the glowing faces of his offspring. The disease never ever takes that away. Joe read my memoir When Can I go Home? I was greatly honored to get his thoughts and his review. I mean why not just ask someone who has the disease? They are people just like everyone else. They count and they matter. Sometimes it was a little hard for him to get through the pages, he did it, he took it seriously and responsibly, because he knows it matters but most importantly: he matters.
My gratitude for him knows no bounds. go to his blog and read his thoughts, his feelings. This disease is not about what we assume it is about, it is about names and faces, people who matter, human beings who count.
Here's to you Mr. Joseph Potocny.......
