This week’s photo prompt is provided by TJ Paris. Thank you TJ!
I don’t understand. Where am I and who is that person standing over there just looking around?
I feel lost, scared and I’m not sure what to do.
Why is everything so dull and depressing to me?
How long can I just stand here?
What? I think I hear someone calling me.
Is Thelma my name? I hope it is.
Finally, a person I can ask. She looks friendly, yes, she wants to help me.
She is leading me to safety. Her kind words have eased my anxiety.
I’m home now and she has prepared my dinner for me. I hope she stays with me. She said she will.
I must remember to stay inside unless she is with me, then we can walk together.

Alzheimer’s disease is a neurological disorder in which the death of brain cells causes memory loss and cognitive decline. A neurodegenerative type of dementia, the disease starts mild and gets progressively worse.
The total brain size shrinks with Alzheimer’s—the tissue has progressively fewer nerve cells and connections.
