SquinkeesDo you know what a Squinkee is? I didn't until I read "Squinkees" over at "For Love Or Funny." They are little cute characters that are packaged inside balls that like to sit on top of pencils. Apparently they are a hit with 6th graders. I've never seen one personally.
Alzheimer's FactsHere’s some things I learned this week about Alzheimer’s from reading Still Alice by Lisa Genova:
Alzheimer’s does not just happen to 80-yr-olds. Even some people in their 40s or 50s get it! (When I can’t think of a particular word or someone’s name, I joke that Alzheimer’s is setting in, but now I don’t think it’s so funny, but kind of scary.)
It is common for people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s under the age of 65 to consider suicide.
Running can be helpful in slowing down the progression of the disease.
The person with Alzheimer’s knows when they are out of it and misses how they used to be.
