A Recording I made recently…..apparently…!

Whenever things like these make an appearance on Twitter, of recordings I’ve made, I listen to them as if for the first time. I have no recollection of recording this, but it’s certainly me…I don’t know when or where we were or who the people were..but it’s clearly my voice, my words, words I’ve said a thousand times before….

From the blurb on the web site, it appears I recorded this outside the  village pub in the garden. It’s a series of podcasts called ‘Dementia and Me’, recorded to highlight the individual experience of people affected by dementia, and I’m just one……there’s many other good ones…..

It’s so strange having no recollection of something that apparently I recorded quite recently.

You can listen to it here…..it starts off generally and then comes my interview…..

About wendy7713

On the 31st July 2014 I was diagnosed with Young Onset Dementia. 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. Haha, I’m like that when I read something I have written. I always question myself, as I can’t remember writing it!!!!

    Wendy, am coming over to the UK from Australia for a trip in May. Will be in Leeds for around 10 days, and would love the opportunity to catch up with you, if there is any chance. Have contact with both Julie and Agnes through DAI, so can maybe connect with you through them.

    Warm wishes, Bobby
