ON MY NEEDLES

I finished reading Still Alice last evening, the fictional account of a woman’s life after her diagnosis with early onset Alzheimer disease. I lost my mother a year ago in October to dementia and so read this through the lens of experience. At times, this was an emotional read, but I didn’t find it especially upsetting or sad. Would I read it again? Probably not, but mostly because of a been there, done that attitude.
I’m currently immersed in Jane Christmas’ (great name, don’t you think?) memoir, And The There Were Nuns, which I’m enjoying very much. Very thought provoking, without being heavy and light in tone, without being flip.
SOME CHEESE WITH THAT WHINE?
You know it’s not going to be pretty when you go to the dentist for a check up and he asks if you want the good news or the bad news first. I lost a filling a few months ago and since it wasn’t giving me any trouble, I waited until my regular check up to have it seen about. The good news? It can be fixed. The bad news? There’s not enough tooth left to fill and a crown is in order. Sigh.
