I have fear of being forgotten by people i love. Be it deliberately or not. I want to be remembered not because i am so proud of myself but because i just want them to remember me. I myself want to remember all those people who have touched my life. I want to keep all memories though good or bad. So, i just can't imagine people who's memories are lost.Like people stricken with Alzheimer's Disease. Just thinking that one of my friends or a loved one might get it breaks my heart. I can't imagine seeing them go through that cycle of loosing their memories, forgetting everything little by little.It is just so sad.....

I just cannot think of this either. Having to live without recognising my loved ones and the things that we did together is so terrible! As humans, we transfigure our past and live on the good moments, they become our strength specially in old age. Alzheimers is a sad thing to happen! I would wish no one ever has this. Smiles.....
