Mom’s a morning person these days

…then you’ll love my new book, “Dementia Sucks: A Caregiver’s Journey with Lessons Learned.” 

The original posts from this blog chronicled my journey with my mother, Rosalind, as she suffered five years of cognitive decline. A year after she died in April 2015, I revisited what I’d written and thought, hmm, this could be a book. My publisher agreed.

As terrible as her situation was, a whole lot of hilarious and unexpected stuff happened. It was challenging, infuriating and heartbreaking, but in retrospect, it’s a good story. And it’s important for people to know, because millions of people are going to suffer before a cure is found, and we have to be ready.

Dementia really, truly does suck. But you can survive it. And I can show you how.

“Dementia Sucks” will be published by Post Hill Press in May 2018. Comment below and I’ll let you know when you can order your copy.

And by all means, “like” the Dementia Sucks Facebook page.
