You’ve been diagnosed with memory loss?  How do you feel, what are your thoughts?  Some individual react calmly.  Others react with fear and worry more for the family members who will provide for their care.  Others experience short term denial.  Support groups are an excellent way to interact with others in similar situations.  Many people in support groups become personal friends and help each other through the process of their own memory loss or coping with the memory loss of a family member.  Ronald Reagan’s announcement of Alzheimer’s disease shocked the nation but brought much needed attention to this disabling disease.
