The Alzheimer`s Association recently sponsored an outing to a Milwaukee Brewers game against the Cincinnati Reds. Due to the Brewers generosity, the tickets were free of charge, and about five hundred of us showed up on Alzheimer`s Awareness Night, and we did our best to Paint The Park Purple.
Oh by the way, the Brewers won, which made it even better.
I was really looking forward to going to this game, even though I knew it might be difficult. Ever since I was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, I`ve had a fear of heights. This seems to be getting worse lately. At Miller Park, the seat locations, and the openness of the building gave me the sensation that the seats were up very high, and that I would fall. Once I was situated in my seat, next to my husband Dan, and surrounded by my “Purple Friends, “ I was able to watch the game and also to control my fear of heights.
I`m really glad I made the effort to go to the game. It was a lot of fun.
