My mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease

"I think that it is really important to have someone or multiple people to talk to."

My mother was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s disease when I was 9-10 years old. I am 13 now and she often forgets who I am. I get very upset a lot but to help me, I rant and vent to my sports coaches as I am very close with them. To take my mind off my problems I do rowing which keeps me focused on rowing instead of my mother. I think that it is really important to have someone or multiple people to talk to.
