Day 6 of 6……Whipps Cross Hospital…….

Feeling very sad and confused.

I wrote this blog on Friday, starting on the journey into London, then in the taxi back from the hospital and finished on the train home………but now it’s vanished, disappeared totally……goodness knows what I did. I expect I was so tired after such a long week that I clicked the wrong button……very sad as it was such a lovely day with amazing staff from the hospital. I was with trainer Buz Loveday, who I often work with as part of the course she runs for hospital staff.

I think they were all Ward Sisters, but then could be totally wrong. It’s no good me trying to write it all again as I’d just be making up the detail now – very sad. Don’t remember that happening before…….☹️

this just goes to show how important it is that I write my blog in real time, otherwise all these wonderful events would be lost.

Anyway, One thing is for certain…..I had a lovely time and had 90 minutes to talk about this that and everything else….and I’m sure there would have been questions afterwards as well……..

So I’m afraid all I can provide is photographic evidence of this wonderfully smiley group…..seems to be two different ones so will add them both……

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. That’s been some busy week you’ve had Wendy. No wonder you faced a blank on the recording of your last event but I’m sure it was wonderful as always and the fact you felt you had a good time afterwards tells us a lot. Take care and hope you are putting your feet up for a bit. You deserve a rest!❤xx

  2. The photos certainly reflect a happy day….have pressed the wrong button myself, many times and know how frustrating it can be! Love the blog always and your busy schedule never ceases to amaze me – don’t know how you do it!

  3. I have only just read your book, I was exhausted reading of your travels and the talks you give. It was an excellent read I laughed and cried, and learnt a lot. Thank you for the insight.

  4. Don’t be hard on yourself. You’re luck that you can write in real time. I can’t do that. I have to photograph from each day to remember what I did, and then write my blog from making a list of topics that I see in the photographs. And it is always days and sometimes weeks after. That’s how I am able to remember and write my blog. So you are doing pretty good Wendy.

  5. Wendy, We all have to accept life as it is. Sorry about your confusion, but you still have considerable joy and purpose in life. Sorry about your going off of tea, also. You might find a teaspoon of honey or a sweet tea like Redbush Vanilla would be better. Be encouraged. As a children’s comic character says, “The past is history; the future is a mystery; and the present is a gift.” All the best
