Just Love Me reveals the thoughts and emotions of a woman struggling with a life that suddenly becomes unmanageable—hospitalizations, suicide attempts, and finally with an arduous search for an accurate diagnosis. Doctors never suspected the cause of her problems to be Alzheimer’s Disease—but it was the culprit.
Lee’s very personal, candid description of her life experiences before, approaching and during the early stages of Alzheimer’s enables readers to better understand people with dementia. By getting inside the mind of the author and experiencing with her worries and frustrations that tormented her then and now, the symptoms of Alzheimer’s become less enigmatic for the reader.
Intended not only for those who have, or think they have Alzheimer’s, Just Love Me is also essential for those who may be interacting with such a person. Alzheimer’s requires a lot of understanding, from both sides of the disease.

It has taken me a while to settle in after the Caregivers' Conference where I received your book from Linda Tucker. I am astonished at your gift, your intelligence and your remarkable courage! Bless you and thank you for your brave and unflinching approach to this disease.
I love so many parts of the book. Your fresh, candid and often humorous writing is powerful. "Life goes on." "I'm still a person"...all of the words you use go right to the heart of the matter.
What you are doing with your early stage group is so amazing, Jeanne. I (and the Memory Foundation) would love to support you and document your efforts. If we could arrange a camera crew, might we be able to videotape one of your sessions and interview you? I don't know when or how I'll get the funds, but IF I could, would you want to participate? It would be very helpful to those who visit Leeza's Place. What a shame that the Alzheimer's Association was not able to/or choose not to support you.
The materials you sent me were a great help, Jeanne. Thank you for taking time to share your life and your love. I am deeply touched, motivated and inspired. I hope to hear from you.
with great respect,
