“Suzette” — I’ve finished Alzheimer’s Through My Mother’s Eyes. What a great service you have provided to caregivers, with this book. If you want a reviewer blurb, I offer this one:

As Suzette Brown notes in Alzheimer’s Through My Mother’s Eyes, ‘love doesn’t conquer all.’ As the book documents in diary-level detail, there are frustrations love cannot conquer when a caregiver is helping a loved one with the vicious and unrelenting disease of Alzheimer’s. Nevertheless, it was love that kept Suzette going, past exhaustion, past the repeated phone calls in which her mother asked the same questions and expressed the same demands repeatedly, past the second-guessing by well-meaning but clueless friends and relatives, past the shoddy ethics of some medical professionals who became involved. If you are a caregiver for someone whose mind is slowly eroding, Suzette’s  meticulous recounting of her own experience, including a great many “I wish I had known then what I know now” asides, will guide you on your way.
