What I'm reading Wednesday...

Slow Dancing With a Stranger: Lost and Found in the Age of Alzheimer's
 by Meryl Comer

Heartbreaking and frightening memoir.  Meryl Comer was a television journalist married to a successful doctor at the National Institute of Health.  Then she was forced to become a caregiver when her husband began suffering terrifying symptoms of dementia in his 50s.  

This one fulfills the 'book by or about a person who has a disability' category of the 2017 reading challenge.

  1. Alzheimer scares me. My father-in-law suffered from it and taking care of him definitely shortened my mother-in-law's life.
