Then he screams and has to be given a sedative because he is too terrified of life. Also, this is complete bull. If an old man lost his memories, then why would he find the old woman beautiful? He'd have no memory of the person and wouldn't be physically attracted to an old stranger, right? I mean come on. Alzheimer's is not something that occasionally produces cutesy happy things like this. It's a tragic and terrifying disease. Fit only to be politely mentioned or made fun of. I'm not usually the sort to get offended at anything, but damn, I'm suddenly feeling all upset by this.

who knows. People can have memories brought back to them through triggers, so maybe subconsciously just seeing her triggers a sense of love and compassion?

At least I'd like to think so and I would like to not think he was a grandma chaser his whole life.

That's only during the early stages. Despite what The Notebook would have you believe, final stage Alzheimer's causes permanent memory loss.

Watch it once, but only if there's a girl with you. Then don't ever watch it again.

Welp. That killed the good feely feel I had.

Alzheimers shouldn't give you a good feely, more like a tragically profound one. Like Mirai Nikki or Marley and Me.

No, but I worked as a CNA for a while at a home. Some were so kind and had wonder in their eyes. Like they have seen life in new ways. The sad truth is that they are losing their memory, yes, I understand that. But at least I knew they didn't suffer.

Really? You must be lucky. Cause every alzheimer's patient I've ever met has been disoriented and so demented that they have to be kept on medication to function.

Well of course there was the occasional patient like that. Very sad to know they live their lives like that daily. I don't know how they do it. I guess the medicine takes the edge off.

I know I'm intruding in this conversation, but is it weird if, while I was reading your conversation, I was listening to Lost in the Echo by Linkin Park?

If I had known that I'd get a notification whenever someone used my name I wouldn't have picked a word for a name.
