Why does Change take so long?…

Following on from Wednesdays blog on my letter to those that hold the purse strings, todays is of a similar theme and my latest blog for Psychology Today.

It asks, does change seem irrelevant unless we ourselves are affected by the situation?

Finance is always the sticking point but I give my three changes that cost nothing as a good starting point……

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.

  1. What a wonderful post, Wendy! We all need to be reminded that kindness and understanding cost nothing except a moment of our time. I look forward to reading your blog daily. It is bringing so much to my life and hopefully I will be able to pass it on to others !
