Dear Abby Shares If Her Mother Discussed Her Alzheimer's Disease (VIDEO)

Rate This

Dear Abby introduces herself and shares if her mother, the original Dear Abby, discussed her Alzheimer's symptoms when she first realized she had a problem.

Dear Abby:
I write the "Dear Abby" column. My professional name is "Dear Abby." I write a column that was founded by my mother Pauline Phillips many years ago, and my connection to Alzheimer’s is that my mother got it.

She never talked to me at any great length about it, and it wasn’t until she was in the middle stages that one day she asked me, she indicated to me that she was having some problems, and I tried to reassure her as best I could.
