I hate watching people die from that disease. Had to watch my mom die that way. It's a real punch in the gut when they don't recognize you anymore. Sucks

I've been lucky, it hasn't hit my family. I've watched the disease progress in countless people but they're people I've only known a few years. It's a real punch in the gut for me, I can only imagine what the familys go through.

Confession: My tears started from the first line of the song.

Most of my experience has been with Alzheimer patients rather than their families. The song echoes the thoughts of many of the early stage patients I've talked to. It's hell on them to know they're losing their mind but in the final stages that burden falls on the family, the patient is often fairly content in their new reality. Hence the line, "best of all, I'm not going to miss you."
