I hope this review goes through, I read this story a long time ago and forgot the name and your penname but I remember I read it through the TwiFanFictionRecs! So I started my search and I found it! This story has special meaning to me, my mom died of this diease almost 6 years again, in fact it will be 6 years ago next month on the 27th, four days after Thanksgiving by that time she was living in a private house for terminally ill patients! My brother and I tried to keep her home but after we knew what was wrong with her and she stayed awake for 9 straights days and nights! we realized we could not do it! she looked like a zombie and I am sure we did too!
Or doctor told us that what could happen is that we could die before our mother did because of the stress it puts on the family, so we placed her in a home that we all liked and she got great care! Caregivers are the angels that walk on earth! It is a hard job and so many times we do not thank them often enough! I find your title really approriate, in our house with our mother we hated sundowners Symdrone! Momma got so agitated and over the counter medicine to calm her did the exact opposite, she became hyper and angrey, It was like watching a two year old on a sugar high and on a full blown temper TAUTRUM! So thank you for such a great story! May you never experience this with your love ones, it is truly the long goodbye! Love how you made Edward human at the end!

It always makes me cry when I read about Bella dying of old age and Edward following her immediately. I much prefer them to have eternity as vampires, but this is good too!

oh, man, that was heartbreaking, but so well done. It was beautiful. I can definitely see that would have been what happened if things had gone that way. Thanks for sharing that. And your message to the caregivers is SOO SOOO TRUE! They are true heroes each and every day.

Thank you! That was amazing(: brought tears to my eyes. I'm glad someone who knows what it's like to take care of elderly wrought this , and gave Edward a clear view on how tough it is on both parties.

This cruel tragedy exists in my life today. It's devistating to lose someone to this horrific disease. Thank you for your words and gift.

Thank you for writing this. I cried most of the way through it.

A sad, but interesting view. I was a care giver for both my grandmother and father who both had Alzheimer's disease. I now work as a DSP (direct support personnel) for mentally handicapped people. It's tough doing that kind of work but very rewarding as well. I enjoyed the story and was saddened by it at the same time. Does that even make sense?

This is a very touching story. You did a wonderful job bringing this story to life. I think I have cried more reading this fic than possibly any other story I've read before. I don't cry very easily and I full out bawled towards the end.
I'm a night nurse on a unit specifically for those with Alzheimer's and other dementias. Because I work nights I experience sundowner behavior on a nightly basis from multiple residents. You wrote the characters very realistically as dealing with the awful disease that is Alzheimer's. Even though I cried (a lot) while reading this, I enjoyed this story very much. Thank you.
