Prank Call of Cthulhu: I just met youAnd this is crazy,But I have Alzheimer's,And I just met you.
justajonesin: the humble subby here, justajonesin, it was my first link ever approved after trying for MANY years. for anyone to say it's HOTY worthy is an incredible honor, anything won will be donated to Alzheimer's research. my grandma had it, and another close friend is in the early stages. remember the ...something.
Phynal: Please read:A year ago my mom was living on her own, driving and babysitting for us. Now, she is Stage 6 Alzheimer's and quickly nearing the end. Seeing her decline at a relatively young age (74) is hard. She is also the only family member I have left on my side of the family. I am an only child, an she was a single parent. We're extremely close. My kids (2 and 3 years old) will never know her.She's mostly gone, it's honestly almost obscene to watch. That's the only way I can describe it. Everyday I watch her suffer. I can't remember the last time I had a day without screaming or completely breaking down. I'm sobbing as I write this.I just want my mom back.So, yeah. These jokes aren't funny to me. I'm also not upset with anyone who posted what they thought was funny. I just want you to know what your laughing at.
Phynal: And to those people who have suffered like I have, and say humor is how they dealt with it:I think that's fine. Actually, I think that's great. But humor in the home between family is a hell of a lot different than making the jokes in public. Randomly hurting people you don't know and saying "well that's how I dealt with it" is just being an ass.
