Automatic TRANSCRIPT

And emotional issue maria it's an honor to have you on bloomberg radio thank you so much for having me here tell me what it was like when you're father was diagnosed with alzheimer's disease well it was in two thousand three as you mentioned and the world was a very different place in regards to this disease there wasn't a lot of information about it there was still a lot of fear about it i think there's still a lot of fear today but there was really a hopelessness surrounding the disease there were a lot more questions in there were answers and so in when i found out that that's what he had mmediately kind of started asking questions maternal list of naturally curious and i found very few answers in that that's what led me to kind of keep pushing as you mentioned i wrote a children's book on the subject and then i started looking for other platforms in which to get the information out there but they were platforms for me to ask questions and get answers and then call that information put it out when someone finds out that member of their family has alzheimer's disease i think we immediately go to the stage four people can't remember their name in there completely disabled but it's not like that it's the little things that happened i what are the first things that happen are i that you experienced when it when it's your family well i think it actually to go back to what you said when people get diagnosed with alzheimer's they kind of go into shock i think that's still what happens i think what happens is if there are small moments along the way that we all disregard i think the challenge to be present in our own lives is challenge really for all of us the challenge to take note of our health is challenge for all of us what we now know is that alzheimer's is present in the brain doing its work for about twenty years before diagnosis so getting people to pay attention to the small changes is a challenge getting that information out there encouraging people to see a neurologist is a scary thing people say like i don't wanna know if i have alzheimer's i don't wanna know if there's something going on there's nothing i can do about.
