Ruth is so upset about her failure to grasp the time difference between her present reading Nao’s diary and Nao writing the diary because she is worried that she is getting Alzheimer’s like her mother. Her great fear is that she will get this disease that will take away her memory. She saw how her mother suffered with the disease and it frightens her. When she forgets thinks, it makes her believe the disease is already taking hold of her. She does not want to lose her memories of her life and her family and friends.
