Journey in photos…..

Saturday was the most glorious sunny day that I decided to take a bus ride to Hull and take photos on the way……Photos can replace a thousand words, especially for me since dementia decided to join me. I can’t remember the detail but the feeling around the story attached to photos seem to be there in abundance.

Sadly it wasn’t the usual double decker so the views weren’t quite as planned………but here’s the result….

A beautiful view of the blossom just coming out by the pond, while waiting for the bus…
The gorgeous clear blue sky with only a plane going to who knows where…
Trundling through the rolling countryside..
Through bright sunny villages..
To my final destination – the Poppies – Weeping Window in the centre of Hull – ” a Cascade of several thousand poppies seen pouring from a high window to the ground below”
So beautiful….

On the 31st July 2014 I was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s. I may not have much of a short term memory anymore but that date is one I’ll never forget. I’m 58 years young, live happily alone in Yorkshire, have 2 daughters and I’m currently still in full time employment in the NHS. However, I’m now in the process of taking early retirement to give me a chance of enjoying life while I’m still me. I've started this blog to allow me, in the first instance, to write all my thoughts before they’re lost. If anyone chooses to follow my ramblings it will serve as a way of raising awareness on the lack of research into Alzheimer's. It will hopefully convey the helplessness of those diagnosed with dementia, as there is no cure – the end is inevitable. However, I’m also hoping I can convey that, although we've been diagnosed, people like me still have a substantial contribution to make; we still have a sense of humour; we sill have feelings. I’m hoping to show the reality of trying to cope on a day to day basis with the ever-changing environment that dementia throws at those diagnosed with the condition. What I want is not sympathy. What I want is simply to raise awareness.
