I don't know really, it must be horrible for the people around you but for yourself? You're dying but don't know it, and that has to be a mercy in my mind.

My gran, 88 when she died, had abdominal cancer and knew that she had 2 years left. Those two years turned her from being a social, loving, 7km-walk-every-morning supergran into a depressed shut-in, and that was so very hard to watch.

I cared for a family member dying of Alzheimers.

Worst disease I've seen anyone die from, watching the progression of a bright go-getter into a babbling burdensome fool in the end for so long. The most thankless and saddest care Ive ever provided for the dying and yet she was so sweet even nearest the end... damn onions...

My Grandmother had this - and it was the most heartbreaking thing - She forgot who I was, but it was my step dad Fred - who I felt for, he cared for her for years - and in her last few months she didnt know who he was - her son, he tried to keep face, and I spent many weeks with him and my mom trying to help him as much as I could. Horrible Horrible Disease

I gotta say I hope I never have to suffer with this disease. If I ever get this disease I'm going to either request I be killed or I'll take my own life. I just don't want to see myself forget everyone and everything I know.
