On Tuesday evening, I’m with my buddy in writing, Anna Wharton, in her home tone of Tunbridge Wells, talking about how we wrote my book. For this event you can bring a friend for free! Never been a BOGOF before😂

And then finally finishing off in my home town of Beverley next Thursday. That event has amazingly Sold Out😳

never had Sold Out across my face before!

I’m looking forward to seeing everyone at these events – all different – but then I’m also looking forward to the end of this dream. It’s been a blast, a wonderful experience meeting different people from all walks of life, some with dementia in their lives but others attending out of curiosity.

So, what after all this excitement?

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.
