Today, I cried my heart out. I just received a bad news and.
I was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's Disease after weeks of tests. I silently hoped I was wrong but here was the reality. Hindi ko matanggap. Ang bata ko pa para makalimot. I am just 28.
Akala ko sa mga matatanda lang ito nangyayari. At least, most of the cases were. The symptoms were there, but I didn't want to admit it. I kept on forgetting important things, and information were getting harder to retain in my mind. I thought that was just due to the environment I was in. I remembered how Mom would sometimes say na mas ulyanin pa ako sa kanya. 'Yon pala ay dahil nagp-progress na ang sakit ko.
I hate this.
I don't want to forget everything.
I don't want to forget everyone.
I don't want to die like an empty vessel.
