This isn’t what I expected. First, I was sure it wouldn’t happen to me. I’ve always been sharp, quick witted. Second, by its own nature this should blind me to the reality. Ignorance is supposed to be bliss. Wrong again. It’s here and I know it. What do I do? Skirt the edges and "fake it" as long as I can? Go to the doc and seek treatment? Tell someone, everyone?
What if they already know? What if I’m some fool, the last to know. What if they’ve been graciously whispering behind my back, kindly letting me live in my dreams?
