Alzheimers any of you have first hand experience. My Grandfather has been diagnosed as well as my Great Grandparents. Today is rough my Grandfather is sedated every hour in a hospital at the moment. Someone I am so close with and got me motivated to join the Marine Corps as he was. Just in such a weak state and can't think for himself. I have to go to my CO tomorrow so I can get leave to help another Marine out. I have lost friends but never lost my best friend like I am now. Any advice?
