Have you seen the mini series advertised on the Lewy Body Dementia Association web site titled "Boss"?  It is pure rubbish!  I watched an episode today, because I saw it advertised on the LBD site.  They stated that it was about a man with LBD and the effects of the disease on him and his family.  NOTHING could be farther from the truth.  It is a series filled with Foul, foul, language, nudity, illicit sex, political power brokering, and intrigue.  But not a SINGLE word about LBD or it's effects on the sufferer or the care taker.
If Hollywood wants to make a movie about our disease, please tell about the despair of loosing your memory, your motor skills, your independence.  Please tell about the wear and tear on the spousal care giver.  Please show the limited institutional care choices and the cost of these services.  Don't pervert our disease with Hollywood smut!

Shame on you Lewy Body Dementia Association for touting this series as being representative of us sufferers!  Shame!!
