Nominated for an award……

Never quite sure what I think of awards. I always feel a tad embarrassed to see my name on a list with wonderful people where in the end only one person will be acknowledged over others……🤔

Everyone is special.

That’s the negative…..the positive is that someone has taken the trouble to nominate you and that it brings to the forefront the work you’re trying to achieve….

Anyway some of you may have already seen this but for those that havn’t……

Winning is irrelevant as it’s the the message it gets out and the awareness it raises that is the selling point for me.

So it’s with a confused heart that I see someone has nominated me for the Yorkshire Choice Awards under the category Inspirational Individual……
It’s an awards that celebrate all things Yorkshire……I don’t see Yorkshire Tea on the list anywhere……..but then I suppose their award is me advertising it so much…..

anyway …..if you have a minute to spare and fancy voting for me, here’s the link…..

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. You already have my vote Wendy. Not only has your vote inspired and informed so many, but having now met you in person, I can personally testify that your personal charm and approachability make it so easy for people to directly relate to you, so more readily take your message onboard xx

  4. It is a pleasure to vote for you. It took a while to figure it out. At first I didn’t go all the way to the bottom of the vote page to put my email address and press “submit.”
    A few days ago I watched “Still Alice”—twice. My eyes tear up a bit just thinking about how special it is. Wishing you just enough snow! Barbara

  5. I am happy to vote for you in the Yorkshire Awards. You deserve it. You’re as good as Yorkshire Tea! Gold even. And coming from a Lancastrian that means something.

    Wendy, I love your blog and follow it every day. It is precious because you are a witness to living well with dementia, both for those who have it and those who live with them. You say how it is, truthfully and fearlessly, and you offer how it can be, with honest hope. Sounds like it might be heavy but it isn’t, because you’re always ready for a good laugh too.

    Ta very much. May you never be short of a cuppa.
