Alzheimer's Disease: Through the Veil of Silence

Published by Chapster on 2003/5/29 (12340 reads)
Alzheimer's disease is an enigma. We have learned much in the past year about biological markers, genes, and other possible factors relating to the development of this disease, yet it seems that there is still so much we don't understand. What is it that is processing at the core of the mind, the heart and the soul of one affected by Alzheimer's disease? What is the struggle that seems to speak volumes in the troubled faces and eyes of the Alzheimer's patient, yet is unable to be expressed verbally? We really wonder if there is something going on inside the mind of the person with Alzheimer's disease that is so meaningful yet it is something that we are blinded to. What if the disease signals something, says something about the soul previously unknown?
