MY book is MY experience of dementia……

It’s a very surreal world I seem to be inhabiting at the moment. I assume normality will resume shortly….

Everything that anyone with dementia says or does is as important as the next but……

Remember, my book contains My version of events. There are 2 sides to every story and this is MY story. How people made me feel, events that happened and most of all MY experience of dementia…….

For those living in America and Canada, I’m afraid you’ll have to wait a little longer as it will be available there from the 5th June. They’ve designed their own cover below.

Here’s the link for America…

About wendy7713

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.
