A Hate Letter To Alzheimer’s

Dearest Alzheimer’s,

Hate is a very strong word but hate is a word that is approprate for you. I hate what you are doing to my grandmother by taking away everything she loves and turning her into a shell. I hate what you don to so many others around the worlid by destroying them. When you strike someone with it, you strike  whole family because we have to watch our loved one fall apart. We should be able to give our loved ones the best send off between the cycle of life and death but that can not happen with you. If you were curable and gone from this world,no one would miss you at all.

Another person who hates you,



Changing My Thanksgiving Plans

Due to me going in for knee surgery before the holiday, I will be in no shape to go in and volunteer since I will have been barley home. I talked with the nursing home that I am doing this and there is no problem but I do feel guilt because I am not going through with a promise. I have some fault by playing a little too rough in the sport I love but this is just one of the small things. I have tofurkey already brought and try to help the family out for dinner while on crutches. The good news is that nursing home who had volunteers come in during Thanksgiving stI’ll needs volunteers during Christmas. This might be better because by then, I will not be under the influence of pain medication that I will need to take for a while.

Trying To Figure Out How To Meditate On A Blown Out ACL

I am not sure if I should avoid the meditation center  until my knee heals up but I blew put my ACL playing hockey this morning and I am on crutches in a straight knee brace. I tried getting down at home and swong my bad leg over my leg that is fine and folded up for proper meditation. It causes even more pain than I am already in to the point I can not focus. Should I just wait until I am feeling better to return to the meditation center even though it will not be until next year? I am also not able to participate in yoga class either.
