Over the past year, I had thought that Kate had reached the point at which she didn’t recognize the impact of Alzheimer’s on her. I have begun to question my conclusion over the past few days. Several times I have been telling her something when she stopped me and said something like, “Stop. I’m not going to remember anything anyway.” I don’t really know that she sees this as a direct result of Alzheimer’s, but, at the very least, it is a recognition that she can’t remember. This is another reminder that a person with Alzheimer’s does recognize things he or she can’t do.
