Feeling lost and sad….

I’m typing this on the teeny weeny screen of my iphone as I am ipadless😢

i took it in for a service yesterday only to leave the shop without it. They need to provide a replacement but can’t do that unless they take it from me🙈

The man was lovely but t sadly it means no more real time blogs until I get it back. I do have one scheduled to go out on Friday as I wrote it at the weekend so that will still appear. Didn’t want people worrying in case its a long absence hence why I’m painstakingly typing this now.

Hopefully I’ll be back soon……

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. I am very impressed with what you have managed to write on your phone. I find it close to impossible to write anything on mine. I know what a lifeline your IPad is to you and do hope you will be back on the new one very soon.
