    1. Hi friend,
      How is the testing going so far? How long have you had Alzheimer's? We're here for you. Our advocates are always looking to connect with the community. Would love to connect with you about your experience with testing. Feel free to email us at contact@alzheimersdisease.net if you're up for talking! Warmly, Elizabeth (AlzheimersDisease.net team member)

    2. @4499 Uniform, thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking a trial medication. We are so very grateful for your willingness to do this for everyone who comes after you. You are such a blessing. Please know that this study will go on to further the research with this disease. We thank you. Blessings and Peace, Kristin Martin, Community Moderator

    1. I tend to be on the manic side, maybe to try to push all of it away. When I can, I practice a deep breathing exercise. Breathe in for a count of 10, hold for a count of 10, breathe out for a count of 10 until you feel calmer. This is one therapy I can do with my husband sitting right next to me!
