Fear

 Had a dream last night.


 Had a dream last night that I was in an institution and didn't know how I got there. I got out and after a bit was caught again. Turned out I had Alzheimer's. Losing my mind along those lines is the only thing I can truly say I fear.  Though I believe in God, I don't believe in life after death. Alzheimer's and the disorders similar to it are, to me, a living death. I am what's contained in my brain. So that dream scared the crap out of me.

I try not to dwell on it. That's dehabilitating too. I will retain my own agency when and if that time comes, so I feel comfortable with the future. You play the hand you're dealt.

 And decisions have already been made if needed.
