"When is my haircut? Where is my slipper"? When I leave the room I get paged, constantly. I'm sick of answering these questions. I know it's just the disease but it's annoying and stressful.

These are the times when I miss my mom and dad the most; they would know what to do. I can't even let Mom know about this because she will be so upset. I hate this disease.

I found this picture of the Aurora Borealis on the Duluth newspaper's website. I thought it was lovely.
