This is the story of Pam and John; she in her early 50’s and John is 62. Pam is a college professor. John taught at a local community college until diagnosed with Parkinson’s in March 2008, then Lewy Body Dementia in April.

John says he just feels different, his body feels different than a year ago. I asked about carrying things up the stairs and he said that there were things he couldn't do helping our daughter move out of her room yesterday that he would have been able to do six months ago. It makes me sad. He is determined to make the most of his situation so he doesn't admit to grief. I am glad he is not depressed, but it is lonely to be mourning alone.
