How Can I Laugh?

That was also a question on an Alzheimer's caregiver's forum.

Some things are just funny.

Some things are so absurd that they are funny.

Some things are so awful that there is no emotion that fits. And so I laugh.

The forums are helpful in a certain way. For one thing there are people who more or less understand some things because they have also experienced them. For another it is not a good idea to always be talking about Alzheimer's with family and friends. Nothing good really comes of it.

I'm sick today. I became ill on Sunday. I hate being sick.
