PEGGY WAVING GOODBYE.
I never realized that this goodbye wave.....
Really meant goodbye!
I wonder if Peggy ever gets lonely.
She is surrounded by care givers and medical staff 24 hours a day where she lives.
But does she get lonely?
Do people who suffer from diseases like Alzheimer's, Pick's and other dementia diseases remember what lonely is or what it feels like?
I know that I have felt lonely in crowds. I was in a city once at the airport and there were thousands of people rushing in every direction. I sat waiting for a plane and looked at the faces of people as they rushed by me and there was not a single face that was familiar. In the thousands of people, I felt completely alone.
Is this what Peggy feels?
Alone and lonely is a terrible place to visit much less....live!
Everyone tells me that Peggy smiles a lot and seems happy in her world.
Maybe, she has forgotten what lonely is and what lonely feels like.
Maybe, she is just happy to be loved and cared for and doesn't spend time connecting with the feeling of lonely.
I really hope that she isn't lonely in her world of Alzheimer's disease. The disease has already taken so much from her...... Maybe, it has done a nice thing in all it has destroyed.
Maybe, it has made her forget....
What lonely feels like.
I Love You Today, Peggy!
