I have ordered several books for staff reading as we continue to minister to our community facilities.

May we use this book to find our ways to a better understanding of us humans.

I read Dianne Hobbs's book and found it mesmerizing. Reading and heeding it should be a priority for everyone our age and everyone who cares for people our age or dependent adults of any age. I plan to buy several copies  and give them to my adult children, my doctors, activists I know in the fields of disability and elderly rights, clergy people, and friends.  I also reviewed ithe book on Amazon, and I encourage everyone to do that, as well as share the news that it exists on social media.

Great idea to write a review on Amazon.  Done!

This really is an important book.

Thank all of you so very much. I didn't expect this reaction and am so glad I put myself out there. I am truly blessed to know all of you!

Just ordered the ook from Amazon and am very much looking forward to reading it. I always knew you would do great things, Dianne.

My dad was in Memory Care for the last 2 years of his long life (died age 101!). He became very gentle as his mind slipped  away, but he fought it for many years, which made being around him difficult. I visted my parents 3-4 times a week for many years so I got a close look at how he was treated - with compassion and patience. I thought his caregivers treated him as if he knew what was going on. Alas, I often didn't.  I know that we were very lucky that my parents chose the right place years before. 

I'm  so sorry that you had such an appalling experience, Dianne. I think I'm going to wish I'd read your book before Dad's troubles.

Thanks, Pat. It's good to hear from you. Hope you're well and happy! Remember our EYC group at St. Paul's?

Dianne,

I would love to read your book but I do not order on line.  If I can buy it from you, I will do so.  Sorry, but my Visa

was compromised on line so I am weary of ever doing it again.

Thank you.  Maybe you have a suggestion.  I'm turning 78 in march and feel it would be to my advantage to read it.

Dianne, well written and an inspiring story.  I enjoyed your comments regarding having your mate and or family members with you during Doctors appointments. Following up on prescriptions and interactions. Thanks

Diane,

I've just finished your book, & I'm both appalled & amazed.  Appalled at what happened to you & amazed at your intelligence, courage & strength in dealing with a truly unbelievable situation.

May you have a long, healthy & happy life.

May I add one more comment on Dianne's fine book, on reading it more closely? 

She has done everyone a great favor by chronicling her descent into medical purgatory and her emergence from it, with her intelligence, grit and charm intact.  

Medical folks need to read this -- a 'how-to' and 'how-not-to' primer. For the rest of us, it's a roadmap to dealing with great adversity.  Thank you, Dianne!

Dianne, I read your book as soon as I got it, and I so much appreciate your writing of your experiences, and how you and your loved ones managed to pull through this horrible experience. I have a granddaughter in nursing school and I plan to send her a copy.  Now every time I get into an awkward situation, such as getting down on the floor to look for something and trying to figure out how to get back up, I ask myself "What would Dianne do?".  You have given us wonderful insight and encouragement for managing the "adventures" of aging. Hope you continue to improve, and you continue your writing.

Search on only: Losing My Mind. Had trouble finding it on Amazon until I used just main title!

Just got my books in the mail for me and putter. Will be reading on our trip to Fla to see daughter. Looking forward to it. The reviews are wonderful.  You are an Amazon and talented lady❤️C

Diane, I ordered my copy today. I am anticipating reading it, but with some anxiety. My mother-in-law was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's at age 53, and she lived in a state of slow decline until she died 20 years later. Accounts of people who have this terrible disease are very difficult for me because I worry for my husband. So far he is fine, but that kernel of fear is always present. Nevertheless, I do look forward to learning the story of your determination and courage in the face of an erroneous and devastating diagnosis.

I was so very sad to hear about the passing of our dear classmate and friend, Steve Blake. I can still see him laughing and welcoming everyone at our last reunion. We never know when it will be our time to be called home, but more than ever,  I feel the urgency to make a difference while I still can... Gratitude to Steve for the man he was, for the life he lived, and for his reminding me that there is still time to do God's work... Steve, you will be missed but fondly remembered...
