Dementia Poem:
=============
 
Walk a while with me my friends, walk with me today.
Come and see what I see, and listen to what I say.
 
Yes, I have dementia, and sometimes it get worse.
Please be very grateful that you don’t have this curse.
 
But are we all that different, the likes of you and me?
We breathe the same, we feel the same, the same things we all see.
 
The only difference is my friends, I don’t feel that well.
When I don’t remember everything that you tell.
 
My heart beats just as quick as yours, my blood runs just as fast.
But because of my dementia, a shadow it does cast.
 
It’s the shadow cast by others, that takes away my light.
It turns my life into darkness, my pleasure into fright.
 
For when you cast that shadow, and it comes my way.
It drains me of my energy, makes me hide, or run away.
 
Sometimes I do things differently, and my mind is not my own.
But do YOU never talk to yourself, when you are alone?
 
So am I all that different, the likes of you and me.
So my friends, come walk a while, the future is you and me!

It was my friend's funeral from the dementia group I was in when we were first diagnosed today...

 

He chose his own time to leave, like 'thunderstorm' did - and who am I to criticise them for doing it.

 

I hope he is now at peace x

7th dementia anniversary
====================

Well... it is on this day in 2011 ( 7 years ago) that I went to the QMC hospital in Nottingham and was given the diagnosis of early onset Alzheimers Disease (dementia).

Ive been a long way, both physically and mentally, since that day, but Ive gotten by with the love and support of my immediate family and a few very good friends... and the support of the majority of my friends here on the forums too.

Im still active here... I intend to still remain active as long as I can even though physically and mentally it is getting a little more difficult to do.

...you wont get rid of me that easily!

Thank you all for your support, itll always mean a lot x

Hey, you remember the date every year so that must be a good sign,

and if the time comes when you forget the anniversary,

at least you won't worry about it because you won't remember.

 

Glass half full mate!  :thumbs_up:

Hi Daryl,

 

Just read through a few of your posts mate. Really hope you're okay.

 

Try and stay positive (as best as you can) and I hope you have many more anniversaries. Hopefully there'll be a cure in the not too distant future.

 

Take care

 

:-)
