Just Love Me: A Life Turned Upside-down by Alzheimers by Jeanne Lee

Just Love Me reveals the thoughts and emotions of a woman struggling with a life that suddenly becomes unmanageable—hospitalizations, suicide attempts, and finally with an arduous search for an accurate diagnosis. Doctors never suspected the cause of her problems to be Alzheimer’s Disease—but it was the culprit.

Lee’s very personal, candid description of her life experiences before, approaching and during the early stages of Alzheimer’s enables readers to better understand people with dementia. By getting inside the mind of the author and experiencing with her worries and frustrations that tormented her then and now, the symptoms of Alzheimer’s become less enigmatic for the reader.

Intended not only for those who have, or think they have Alzheimer’s, Just Love Me is also essential for those who may be interacting with such a person. Alzheimer’s requires a lot of understanding, from both sides of the disease.
