At age 57, herb farmer Thomas DeBaggio noticed he was forgetting the names of plants. He was soon diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease — and began writing a memoir focusing on what he was going through. He and his wife Joyce talk about how their lives have changed over the past three years. DeBaggio’s memoir is titled "Losing My Mind" (Free Press).
