âI know where Iâm going. Iâm still myself. I just canât remember things as well as I once did. So on short trips, I work hard not to be confused. Iâll say to myself, What are we going to do? How long are we staying? Itâs like Iâm talking to my other selfâthe self I used to be. She tells me, This is what we need to buyânot that. Iâm conscious of that other self guiding me now.â
Restaurateur, magazine publisher, celebrity chef, and nationally known lifestyle maven, B. Smith is struggling at 66 with a tag she never expected to add to that string: Alzheimer's patient.Â Sheâs not alone. Every 67 seconds someone newly develops it, and millions of lives are affected by its aftershocks.
B. and her husband, Dan, working with Vanity Fair contributing editor Michael Shnayerson, unstintingly share their unfolding story. Crafted in short chapters that interweave their narrative with practical and helpful advice, readers learn about dealing with Alzheimer's day-to-day challenges: the family realities and tensions, ways of coping, coming research that may tip the scale, as well as lessons learned along the way.
At its heart, Before I Forget is a love story: illuminating a love of family, life, and hope.
