Blog by a doctor with Alzheimer’s disease

I’m a devoted fangirl of intelligent autobiographical blogs that attempt to capture events and emotions as they happen to to share them with a wider audience who might not have access to that experience. This is why Watching the Lights Go Out is now in my regular reading list.

Dr. David Hilfiker was diagnosed with “mild cognitive impairment, almost certainly Alzheimer’s diseaes” last September and outed himself with the creation of this blog on January first. His account is insightful and inspirational, and he says he hopes to help banish some of the stigma of the disease. Take a look.
