Sarah Leavitt Dot Com

I heard an interview with artist/writer Sarah Leavitt today for the second time on Shelagh Rogers. It featured Sarah's powerful book, entitled, "Tangles", which is about living with her mother's Alzheimers disease. One thing that struck me was that she spoke about how isolating the disease is. It caused me to reflect on how most diseases are isolating, and those of us who are well are convicted by this and we need to change our attitudes about disease. As a recovering alcoholic I know how isolation works. It kills people.
