The Real 'Zombie Apocalypse'

They sit and stare mindlessly into space, they stumble around without purpose, they don't recognize even their own children...zombies you may guess. No, I'm talking about the victims of Alzheimer's Disease.

Granted these poor souls don't harm others, but they do put a burden upon an already dysfunctional health care system. We need more research, and I mean fast. This disease scares me far, far more than any horror movie I've ever seen.

Lost my grandmother last year to this disease. Horrible. Basic everyday functions are forgotten. She forgot her children and grandchildren.

She begun to become more easily startled. Once pulled out a knife on me because she forgot I was there, and I went to the bathroom for like 30 seconds.

It's an ugly thing to watch happen to someone.

I lost my great aunt in Germany two years ago. We called her one day and she didn't know who the hell we were! She said we had the wrong number! I was sad for the rest of the day. :'(

Oh. I've never met someone with Alzheimer's disease.

Chances are that at some point in your life you will.
