My dad was also diagnosed 11 years ago when he was just 59! 11 years on and his mind has totally left him now! Even the simplest tasks are a battle and he speaks no sense! It’s heartbreaking and I know exactly how you feel! I’m truly sorry you are going through it too! I hate Alzheimer’s! So glad you spoke about it publicly definitely makes us feel less alone in this!”
Another fan added, “Watching the episode of you talking to Liv made me cry😢 I am a carer and I know the impact of this horrible disease, how it affects individual person and also their family. You should not feel guilty one bit. You have to remember her by who she was. There isn’t a lot of support out there and not a lot of information about it. There is an Alzheimer’s society that has lots of information and Peoples story who have been through what you are going through as well. Just remember that your mum loves you.”
