Losing my Mind: An Intimate Look at Life with Alzheimers by Thomas Debaggio

27 Sep

With nothing but retirement ahead of him, Tom DeBaggio started to notice some difficulty remembering certain things. What started out as a minor problem ended up being Alzheimer’s Disease. Memory is hunger and Tom set you to preserve his history before he could no longer remember it.

The book has three different viewpoints-his childhood, his journey with the disease and straight facts. This allows the reader to absorb the sadness and grief in smaller doses. An engaging memoir that startles when you realize that the author no longer remembers writing it. 2002, 207 pages.
