What if every memory you've ever had will be erased from your mind, and you have no choice but to carry on. I would imagine that his thoughts and feelings were a mixture of disbelief and perhaps he didn't fully believe that this disease could just come out of the blue, reach into his world and shatter it.
For someone who supposedly suffered from significant language problems, Alice always managed to be fully articulate when necessary.

At once beautiful and terrifying, Still Alice is a moving and vivid depiction of life with early-onset Alzheimer's disease that is as compelling as A Beautiful Mind and as unforgettable as Ordinary People.

Lisa Genova has provided a really insightful and intuitive account into the world of the early onset of Alzheimer's Disease. It was an extremely thought-provoking read.

The knowledge of this, on top of her own losses of stature, confidence, and ultimately her independence, serves only to compound the agony.
And while there's obviously no happy ending in sight, Genova still manages to paint a story of hope, reminding listeners that even in the midst of great loss and suffering, love remains.
