1) When Alice becomes disoriented in Harvard square, she doesn’t tell her husband, not only because she feared illness, but because she was also scared what her husband would think. I think one of the behaviors and responses she shows is denial. She doesn’t want to believe that it is anything major going on with her; her husband also displays this response when she tells him about her problems and he goes to the doctor with her. I think another response she displays is resilience, after she gets the diagnosis, she does everything she can to try to keep her memory. Her practicing remembering words while she is cooking and answering the same questions everyday are just two examples of how she does this. In class we discussed these factors, how many people are in denial first, after that they can either stay in denial or do something about their diagnosis to try to help themselves. She tries to help herself. 2) I think Lydia declined knowing because she wanted to avoid the stress of if she did have it, and she wanted to be able to keep her life as normal as possible. She wants to be able to focus on her career and her mother’s health before she focuses on her own health.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
